Comment sought on feed grain, soybean programs Wliat goes jump, stretch and groan?
Deputy Secretary of Agri
culture Jim Williams has
asked the public to comment
by Oct. 27 on proposals for the
1981 feed grain and soybean
programs.
By Nov. 15. a decision must
be made on whether to offer a
set-aside program or to per
mit farmers to be eligible for
program benefits-including
the reserve program-without
setting aside acreage. Will
iams saidr
In particular, Williams said,
USDA is seeking comments on
reserve release and call prices
which are based on production
costs and adjusted either by
increasing the national aver
age loan price or increasing
the gap between loan ' and
reserve prices. .
Under new authorities gran-
ted under the Agricultural
Adjustment Act of 1980. the
current cost of production
estimates may be considered
in determining 1981 target
prices. In the past, changes in
target prices were based upon
a formula considering only
prior year's costs, said Will
iams. Because of these new
authorities. Williams said.
USDA is asking for comments
on how 1981 target prices
should be adjusted from 1980
levels and whether producers
should be required to comply
with established farm normal
crop acreages to be eligible
for full program benefits. v
Williams said USDA also is
asking whether barley and
oats should be included in the
1981 feed grain program, and
appropriate loan and purch
ase prices for corn, sorghum,
barley, oats and rye.
In addition, public comment
is requested on whether there
should be a land diversion
program, and if so, the size of
the diversion and level of
payment. Comments are also
requested on limitations on
planted acreage, Williams
said.
If a set-aside program is
implemented. USDA has dis
cretionary authority to adjust
the target price to compensate
producers for participating in
such a program, according to
Williams. Comments are re
quested on whether this auth
ority should be used and the
magnitude on any adjustment.
"Because of the relationship
between soybeans and feed
grains, we are also seeking
public comments on approp
riate loan price and purchase
price levels for 1981 crop
soybeans. Other determinat
ions affecting soybeans in
clude commodity eligibility,
storage requirements and
premiums and discounts,"
Williams said.
Related to these program
decisions are determinations
on the amount of the national
program acreage and recom
mended reductions from 1980
harvested acreage for full
target price protection.
Williams said that while
USDA is required bv law to
announce set-aside, national
program acreage and recom
mended reductions in plant
ings decisions by Nov. 15. the
department may announce
program decisions before that
time.
Before reaching any decis
ions, all recommendations
and views will be considered
along with the best data
available on world and U.S.
crop conditions, production
and consumption prospects.
