In making their plaris for the usual spring rush, farmers of Kossuth county were urged this week by Herman J. Studer, office man- .p'ger of the ASC committee, to b| sure to allot necessary time to establish needed soil and water conservation practices. ' He declared that in many ins tances failure to carry out con servation work in the spring re suits in postponements of the practices until tha next year or even complete abandonment o the plan. ' Manager Studer pointed out that^such practices as pasture improvement, establishment of permanent cover and construction 01 sod waterways, which require' seeding, are springtime projects primarily. Terracing, contouring, constructing ponds and spreading limestone are other practices which should or can bo done in the spring . The ASC manager emphasized that farmers having approvals for early ACP cost-sharing con- =ervation practices must get them completed or well under way bo- "ore their approval expiration dates in order to qualify for assistance payments. He declared that failure to act promptly in the spring' accounts for much of the annual slippage between the amount of work authorized for cost-sharing and the amount actually completed.. The worst thing about such slippage, Manager Studer said, is that it represents unused fund; wjiich might have been used by other farmers who were anxious and willing to carry out needec conseovation. He stressed tha farmers who have approvals foi ACP practices and who find they cannot carry out the work shoulc notify the county office immedi ately so that funds obligated to them may be,reassigned to other? who are prepared to act. The manager also said that farmers who are carrying out their approved practices as, planned should.notify the county office as soon as the work is completed or by the fixed completion .latelat the very latest. Funds are available in Kossuth county for approval at this lime of new. or additional request? for cost - sharing conservation ornctices to be carried out in 1955 Applications should be filed a< once at the county ASC office.
