THE SOIL BANK CORN BASE Will permit you to grow up tc 33°° more corn in 1957 than the corn acreage allotment. 2. THE SOIL BANK CORN BASE Would establish a 51-million acre minimum for 3 years. (Under the other plan, corn acreag eallot- ments may decrase each year.) 3. THE SOIL BANK CORN BASE Provides for some production control (15°° of base in the Soil Bank). (The acreage Allotment .plan only shifts production.) 4. THE4. THE SOIL BANK CORN BASE Will result in a higher net income than the Allotment plan. (Figure it for your own farm, including extra corn that ton be produced, plus the Soil Bank payments) 5. THE SOIL BANK CORN BASE Will pave the way for requiring cotrcn and wheat formers to participate in the Bank, and help control competition from diverted acres. 6. THE SOIL BANK is the only effective cross compliance mechanism. THE COR NACREAGE ALLOTMENT (The Alternative) &9ps provide 5c per bushel higher support, but the c'jfljmeflt is so low that it appears there will be very little participation.
