North Carolina's wheat acreage
allotment for the 1956 crop is 281,
739 acres. This is a slight de
crease from the allotment of 284,
547 for the current year. The Na
tional allotment for 1956 remains
the same as in 1955, 55 million
acres, the legal minimum.
Helene W. Nixon, Perquimans
County Office Manager, advised
that the State allotment has been
broken down to counties. The al
lotment for Perquimans County is
149 acres. Farm allotments have
been determined for the 1956 crop,
and each wheat grower will receive
notice of his farm allotment before
the 1956 wheat marketing quota
referendum to be held June 25th.
The referendum will determine
whether marketing quotas recently
proclaimed by the . Secretary of
Agriculture will be in . effect for
the 1956 crop. A two-thirds fav
orable vote is required.
State and - county allotments.
Miss . Nixon explains, are based
upon wheat acreage of the past 10
years with consideration for weath
er and trends. Farm acreage al
lotments are based on the wheat
acreages of the past 3 years with
consideration for tillable acres, crop
rotations, type of soil, and other
factors. This accounts for the
change in state, county and farm
allotments from one year to the
