the purchase of construction
equipment to be used in land

districts unfamiliar with land
leveling methods. It is the policy
of the region to loan this equip

The district conservators may put
this equipment on a pilot job
without cost to the farmer if the
farmer provides fuel and an op
erator, or at a rental comparable
to commercial rates.
