UNDER NEW WHEAT
Removal of acreage allotment and
marketing quota restrictions on
wheat production is not a "go sig
nal" for a wheat-planting spree
similar to that in world war one,
says R. B. Taylor, chairman of the
stats AAA committee, and William
L .Teutsch, assistant director of ex
tension, in a joint statement dis
cussing the action recently taken
by Secretary of Agriculture Claud
On the contrary, they recom
mend that Oregon growers adhere
closely to the various production
goals decided upon in each county
recently at farmers' meetings and
includedd in 1943 farm plans. Grow
ers who have the land and facili
ties adapted to" war crops such as
dry edible peas, potatoes, dry beans,
flax and vegetables will make a far
greater contribution to the nation's
war food needs by growing these
crops instead of wheat, they point
While the amount of wheat plant
ed will not affect a farmer's eligi
bility for AAA wheat payments or
crop loans, full payments will vt
be made unless 90 per cent of each
farm's war crop goal, as established
on the farm plan, is met.
Removal of the restrictions which
were designed to assist growers ad
just wheat production to a shrink
ing market were not' prompted by
any impending wheat shortage,
Taylor and Teutsch emphasized.
Rather, the action was taken to
encourage every farm to make a
maximum contribution to war food
In some areas, such as the more
arid district in the Columbia basin
counties, wheat yields greater pro
duction per acre than any other
crop. Farmers in such areas can
produce plenty ' of wheat to meet
food and feed needs.
Pointing out that there's still an
extra year's supply of wheat in stor
age, these farm leaders warned that
large scale plantings of spring
wheat could easily result in a repe
tition of last year's extremely tight
storage situation. While seven mil
.lion bushels of Oregon wheat were
being moved through the feed
wheat program this past year, an
other 14,000,000 buhels moved into
storage under government loan in
