(lfc,) Upper Dea Moindj Thursday, December 6, l9Sf f|lt* ' VMS' -.'•; • ••> •/:,' •• ~j plaiiC^n ifchase Plan f|'urchase 'Agreements provide ffififtefs the Sarti6 -level of 'govern- rrfeflt price support for their crops • •••alr$riee support loan?, it was efriphasized this iweek' by: $ich- ardyl, Anderson, chairhian of (he KdSsuth County ASC committee. SHe said that many farmers have the mistaken idea that they niUSt take loans on, their corn, oatS, soybeans, or other supported^'commodities in order to get pMce support protection oh them. The fact is, he continued, the price support level' is the same for loans and purchase agreements. ,The loan plan is designed especially for the' producer who '•• has; immediate need of cash, while the purchase,, agreement plan provided, price support protection for the producer who does not need cash and; does not wish to encumber his grain. Grain covered by a purchase agreement may be farm-stored or warehouse-stored, the same as for a loan.- The applicant for a purchase agreement, the same as an applicant for a loan, must be the producer of the grain involved. .; . Under a-purchase; agreement, a producer is guaranteed the price support rate for a specified amount of the commodity at a delivery time fixed by the government. To be accepted at delivery time, the purchase agreement commodity must meet certain quality requirements. In the ; case of corn, it must' grade No. 3 or better or No. 4 on the factor of test weight _ only. When delivery time arrives, the holder of a purchase agreement may sell the government up to but not more than the amount specified in his agreement, or he may sell the government a smaller arnqunt or none whatever. The purchase agreement merely guarantees that the holder will 'receive the price support rate'for as many bushels of the amount covered by his agreement as hfe decides to deliver. The holder of a purchase agreement has full-titfe,and control of his commodity at all times and may use or dispose of II whenever and however he desires. Iowa pfddufcers have until January 31 to obtain purchase agreements on this year's crop of barley, oats, grain sorghums, rye, soybeans, wheat and flaxseed and utftll next May 31 off corn. Applications must be filed With the ASC office serving the county where the commodity was produced. The fee for purchase agreement is one-half cent per bushel/' with a minimum of $1.50.
