ASCS Office Sets Wheat Penalty Rate The marketing quota penalty rale on 1962-crop "excess" wheat production has been set at $1.59 per bushel, Fred L. Benner, Chairman, Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation County Committee, has announced. This compares with a 1981-crop wheat penalty rate of $1.08 per bushel. Under the 1962 wheat quota program, the marketing quota penal- ly on excess wheat is required by law to be set at 65 percent of parity as of May 1 of the crop year. In previous years, the pen- ally rate was 45 percent of parity. This rale—$1.59 per bushel for 1962—limes a farm's wheal ex- re ,s—expressed in bushels—determines the aclual amount of pen- ally. For 1962, (he Chairman explained, the law also directs that Ihe amount of wheat subject to pen ally shall be figured at twice the farm's normal yield on all the ex cess acres unless Ihe 1962 actual yield is proved lo be less and "he producer files a request for an adjustment. Benner stressed the fact thai some farms with 15 acres or less of wheat may be subject to quota penalties on their wheat produc tion this year as a result of chang es made in the Jaw for 1962. Be fore this year, producers on farms harvesting less than 15 acres o wheat were not subject lo penal lies. Now, however, quotas apply lo all farms on which Ihe 1962 wheal acreage exceeds Ihe small or of (a) 13.5 acres or (b) llv highest acreage in any of Ihc three years 1959, I960, or 1961, Producers who have exees GRANGE NEWS DEACON A Memorial Service for de- icased members of Deacon Grange! was held at Uie Grange neeting Wednesday evening.
