Department officials pointed out that this requirement is aimed at insuring that additional rrybean production will be on acreage that has been used for crops in abundant supply such as wheat, corn, grain sorghum, and other feed crops rather than from land now in conserving uses or idle. The Department wants to a- voici increasing soybean acreage at the expense of acreage now u n d e r conservation practices. Price supports on the 19(il soybean cir:p have been increased to insure an adequate supply and to help meet anticipated needs for this important oil crop. The national average support price for 1961-crop soybeans will be $2.30 per bushel or 45 cents more than for the 1960 crop. the rate of a pom, 3 of cr-jin fui three p.unds of l<ji."t.

Some chemical compounds are more potent and are being used' more frequently. For example, flics developed an immunity to DDT, so potencies were increased in order to kill the flies. These more powerful chemicals are not only killing in- .sects, but causing danger to animals and man when introduced to their drinking water.
