Speaking for National Farmers Union, Cranek declared that the preference of farmers for the existing program can be judged from huge margins by which producers have endorsed the rice marketing quota programs. In the most recent referenda, producer approval has been in the range of 93 to 94 per cent, he noted Cranek stated that under the House Bill, the rice loan level for 1976 would be set at $6 per hundred pounds, compared to an $8.52 support level for 1975 The Farmers Union HUNT HARDWARE \\K STOCK MOBILE HOME ANCHOR SUPPLIES EARTH UT.KRS STKAHMM; StOTKI) A DHIU-Kt! > TENSION BOLTS PI-AV1AI1ON DH. LAKK JUKSO.N spokesman declared that the action of the Secretary of Agriculture In refusing to declare marketing quotas for 1975, had created a situation of low prices, chaos and uncertainty for rice farmers and even worse conditions are ahead If the rice program is changed. The price of rice has fallen to lh« support level or below and sixty to seventy per cent of the sale offerings are not even getting a bid price, Cranek explained. "If Congress were to embrace a target-pricing, unlimited production policy," Cranek warned, "it could well be fatal for the small and medium- sited producers who are most severely affected by market instability."
