Programs for which signups will be conducted — probably early in 1966 — include feed grains, wheat and cropland adjustment. Gosnell pointed out there are many details to be worked out before field offices are in position to answer questions about how the programs may apply to a specific farm and accept applications showing the grower's intentions to participate. He added that when signups do start, farmers will be reminded in plenty of time to file program applications before the deadline.
