9<*Afg6na (Ift.) Upper 5es MeihSS Thursday, December 8, 1955 ASC Chairman Explains Corn Purchase Plan Purchase agreements provide farthers the same level of government price support for their crops as price support loans, it was emphasized this week by Richard I. Anderson, chairman of the Kossuth County ASC committee. Me said that many farmers have the mistnken idea that they must take loans on their corn, oats, soybeans, or other supported commodities in order to get price support protection on 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 docs 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 :i 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 amount 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 he decides to deliver. The holder of a purchase agreement has full title and control of his commodity nt all times and may use or dispose of it whenever and however he desires. Iowa producers have until January 31 to obtain purchase agreements on this year's crop of barley, oats, grain sorghums, rye. soybeans, wheat and flaxseed arid until next May 31 on corn. Applications must be filed with the ASC -office seivind the county where the commodity was produced. The fee for purchase agreement is one-half cent per bushel, with a minimum of $1.50.
