Increased Price Support Level
Released For 1961 Peanut Crop!
Peanut farmers will enjoy an
increased price support level in
lDfllj as compared with 1960, ac
cording to -A. - C. Griffin, Chair
man of the Chowan County ASC
This is based on a recent an
nouncement by the Department
of Agriculture, that price sup
port on 1961 crop peanuts will
be at a minimum national aver
age of $221 per ton. This com
pares with the minimum nation
al support rate in 1960 of $201.24
per ton. This shows a $19.76
increase in the national aver
age support rate and the sup
port price in this state should
advance at approximately the
same ratio. According to Grif
fin if the increase support level
to North Carolina farmers is at
the same rate, support in 1961
will be approximately $233 per
ton 'to farmers in this state.
Support on 1961 crop peanuts
will be available by means of
warehouse stored loans to grow-|
ers associations, farm storage'
loans, and purchase agreements.:
Support for the 1960 crop re-j
fleeted 78% of parity while the'
announced minimum support,
level for 1961 is equivalent toi
85% of the March 1961 parity
price of $260 per ton. |
The fact that all of these fig
ures are based on a minin • n
national average support rate in
dicates if the supply situation in
August of 1961 justifies an in
crease these rates might iise
Another factor which will af
fect the price farmers receive
for their peanuts in this stale,
according to Griffin, is the dis
continuation of the deduction i
from growers support prices for !
inspection, grower association
expenses, and monthly storage.
The deduction from grower.,',
support prices of $9 per ton from:
the 1960 crop for these expenses
has been eliminated by the See- 1
retary of Agriculture. At the
time the Secretary announced
this change he stated:
“Elimination of the $9 per ten
charge and the higher support
price will increase the net ad
vance to producers by an aver
age of $28.76 per ton more t 1 an
last year. Farmers received
3192.24 per ton in 1960. T i:
will be increased to $221 pjr
ton in 1961”.
