Friday Evening, June 8, 1962. Logansport, Indiana Pharos-Tribune Fivo ASCS Releases Data On Wheat, Crops Wheat Marketing Quota Postponed Proclamations relating to mar fceting quotas and acreage allotments for the 1963 crop of wheaf have been temporarily postponed, according to an announcement •by Secretary of Agriculture Orville L. Freeman. ' The postponement- was authorized by legislation recently en- arfed by Congress which pecm.ts the Secretary of Agriculture (;> doler until June 15, 193:',, any proclamation as to marketing quotas and acreage allotm-Mts for the 1963 wha«t crop which other wise would oe required to be made by May 15. Fred Benner, Chairman, Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation County Committee, reminds wheat growers that the Wheat Stabilization Program provided under legislation enacted last year applies only to the 1962 crop of wheat. Under that program, individual farm wheat allotments were reduced 10 percent below what they would have been tinder a minimum national acreage allotment of 55 million acres, and diversion payments were available to those proJucers who shifted wheat acreage to a conservation use. Wheat price support was 'available only to those wheat producers who participated in the Wheat Stabilization Vro- gram and who stayed within their larm allotments. The Ch<iirman emphasized thai the legislation governing the 1962 wheat program also increased che marketing quota penalty rate as well as the amount oi wheat jur.-jpnt to penalty, and extend ed the quota program to many small faims which were previously exempt from quotas. Th>3 marketing q.ioia penalty rale for 1962 " wheat has reewtiv be™ announced at J1.59 a bushel, compared with a 1961-crop penalty rate of $1.08 a bushel. Benner urged wheat growers who are not clear about the wheat qi'ota provisions to check with the ASCS county office, for full information. OATS PRICE SUPPORT The price support rate for 1962- crop oats in Cass County will be 64 c/Snls per bushel for Grade No. 3 oats. This is the same rate that was in effect for the 1961 oats crop. .Oats eligible for support must grade No. 3 or better, - or No. 4 on the factor of test weight only. Premiums and discounts which are applied for grade and quality to determine individual producer support rates -are unchanged from the 1961 program.-The premiums are one cent per bushel for grade No. 2 or better, one cent for heavy test weight, and two cents for exlra heavy test weight. Discounts are. one cent per bushel for grade No. 4 on the basis of test weight only and three cents per bushel for garlicky oats. The Chairman, pointed out that participation in the 1962 feed grain 1 program for • corn, grain sorghum, or barley will not be a condition of ^eligibility for price support on 1962-crop oats. Participation MV the 1961 feed grain program was required for 1961- crop oats price support eligibility. As in previous years, price support on 1962-crop oats will be carried out through farm and warehouse-stored loans and . purchase agreements.

Phon» fl22-7B03 MILE-POSTS By BYBON PABVIS Area farmers looked on with 'avor this past week as the rains drenched planted fields, The mois- ;ure was a great asset to this year's crops. Now that the rains have come, many 'are hoping .that the sun will shine for. a few days to. permit the crops a chance to grow. Crops, generally speaking are right on schedule. As in baseball, Decoration Day (just passed) and Fourth of July (coming up) with the corn crop are "let's stand back and take a look" days. And this year's look is quite favorable. May's "double header" for corn has been almost unprecedented with the right temperatures and a generous amount of rainfall. The corn borer, in many areas, seems to threaten less damage than usual. Hot weather advanced its development so fast that.it will apparently overshoot its target. , . _ .. „ „ > ' _ "\ Only extremely early fields may be of a proper size for borer survival as eggs hatch. Indiana farmers have been asked to count noses and report the number of livestock and chickens on their farms in the June semiannual nation-wide survey of livestock numbers, the Indiana Crop and Livestock Reporting Services announced this week. The report form asks each farmer to report numbers of each class of livestock, divided by age, and the number of chicks bought or raised this year and the number on hand on Juno 1. Robert E. Straszheim, state ag ricultural statistician at Purdue, says the information on livestock and poultry numbers makes it possible for farmers and others to follow the trend in population of livestock and poultry and use County SCS Supervisors Plan Events A tour at Crawfordsville on July 25 was discussed at the meeting of the Cass county Soil and Water Conservation supervisors held Thursday evening at the local SCS office.
