SOUTHWEST OF COURTHOUSE SQUARE PMONI *00 Qualify Check Planned Prior To Delivery Farm-stored grain covered by purchase agreements under the government's price support program will be inspected hereafter before a delivery notice is sent to the owner, it was announced this week by Virgil L. Rohlf, Manager of the Kossuth County ASC. The purpose of the advance inspection of purchase agreement commodities, is to prevent possible misunderstandings resulting from delivery of grain which fails to meet specified quality requirements and which therefore is not eligible for price support. The advance inspections of purchase agreement grain should be regarded as a valuable service since they may uncover trouble spots and enable producers to take corrective or protective steps. Advance inspection of purchase agreements commodities has not been done in the past but there has always been periodic inspection of farm-stored commodities under price support loans as means of protecting the interests of both the producers having loans and the government. The new purchase agreement procedure will apply to small grains, grain sorghum, flaxseed, soybeans and corn. However, the inspection will be made only fn cases where producers have notified their county ASC Office that they intend to deliver grain covered by purchase agreements. This provision is to remind producers having purchase agreements that they are required to notify the county ASC office sometime during the 30 days period preceding the maturity date of any agreement as to the quantity of the covered commodity they desire to deliver at the price support rate. In the case of wheat and grain sorghum, the maturity date is March 31. Since March 31 is a Saturday this year and ASC offices are not open on Saturdays, holders of purchase agreements on wheat and grain sorghum have until March 30 to notify their county office as to the quantities of these commodities they wish to deliver this year. Maturity dates on other commodities are April 30 for barley, oats, rye and flaxseed; May 31 for soybeans, and July 31 for corn. spent Tuesday evening with Mrs Amanda Pettit. .
