C. Harwell, chairman of the Agri- ultural Stabilization and Con- leryatibn -County Committee has , announced. The cotton credited to this export! market acreage, which is in addition to the^farm's effective allotment, will not be eligible : for price support, :t the, chairman explained. The farmer also furnishes EL bond or other guaranty that the cotjton from the 5 per cent additional acreage will be exported without ibenefit of government subsidy. Such a guaranty may be furnished by individuals, banks, gin®, cooperatives, or any business which the ASC county committee considers a^proper surety. A cash deposit in the amount of the estimated liquidated damages, or irrevocable letter of credit from a -bank may Ibe accepted instead of a .bond. The bond cir letter of credit will be released or the cash deposit refunded when the 'producer furnishes satisfactory proof of exportation of the cotton. The amount for export, under the , programs export market provision, will be a number of pounds equal to the appraised 1964 production of the farm's export market acreage. In some instances', Harwell pointed out, due to bale weights thisi will require exportation of small quantities in excess of the estimated production of the export acreage. In case of natural disasters causing actual production to ibe substantially less than the estimated production, however, the quantity for export may .be adjusted downward. Proof of actual production would be required before such an adjustment could be made.
