For Wheat Plan
All farmers of Oregon who have
raised wheat on their farms within
the last 10 years are being asked to
report acreages and yields to their
county committees in preparation
for making individual farm wheat
acreage allotments for 1938. Blanks
have been or are being sent from
the county offices for this purpose,
according to members of the state
While the records in the county
offices already contain considerable
data of this nature for those who
took part in the wheat program of
1933 to 1936, a much larger number
of growers will be able to benefit
from the present provision for a 12
cents a bushel payment on wheat al
lotments, it is explained.
In cases where a farmer is unable
to obtain acreage and yield facts
from his own records, the commit
tees have a method of figuring yields
from the productivity index of the
farm, which will be used to arrive
at a fairly accurate figure, although
facts obtained directly from,, each
farmer are being sought first.
County meetings to explain the de
tails of the wheat plan have been
held throughout eastern Oregon,
with N. E. Dodd, chairman of the
state committee, attending most of
them. He reports that the reaction of
the growers to the program is gener
Meanwhile, plans are going ahead
nationally to put the plan into ef
fect to provide crop insurance for
wheat on the 1939 crop. In addition
to the main office of the new federal
crop insurance corporation in Wash
ington, there will be two regional
offices, one in Kansas City for the
winter wheat belt, and the other in
Minneapolis for the spring wheat
area. The regional office in Kansas
City will be open for business by
July 1, it is believed, in plenty of
time to be ready for the first fall
Premiums for insurance on the
1939 crop will be paid in advance,
either in actual wheat or its cash
equivalent. The amount of premiums
to be paid will depend upon the crop
loss experienced both on the farm
and for the county in which the
farm is located. The amount of in
surance may be either one-half or
three-fourths of the normal yield.
