1938 Agricultural Conservation
Program Is Aimed
Directly At Soil Conser1
vation And Cash-Crop
. j Control
I The 19n8 agricultural conservation
program is aimed directly at
soil eonseivation, with as much
' cash-crop control as is possible
. under provisions of the AAA as
it now stands,
i Partners complying with the
programs will need to carry out
half again as many soil-building
practices as in 19:17, said E. V.
I Floyd, of Slate College, in an.
nouncing the program for next
i | year.
, But these practices will he those
< which any farmer interested in
- conserving his soil will be glad to
follow, he added.
A greater effort will he made
, to regulate the acreage of soildepleting
crops by providing foi
-, heavier deductions from the pay.
ments of growers who exceed
their "soil-depleting goals," Floy
If growers desire a greater tie
give of production control, he con
tinned, it will liave to bo securec
through legislation in addition tc
the present agricultural conservation
In the 19."8 program, he wen!
on, goals will be set up for the
optimum acreages of soil-depleting
crops and soil-building crop;
and practices for each farm.
Goals for depleting crops wil
be the acreages which would us
ually be required to supply th-L'
demand at a price to both thi
producers and the consumer. Th'
national and State goals will b.
s subdivided into county and indivi
" dual farm goals.
y' Soil-building goals will includt

to restore and maintain the soi
I resources of the land.
' Separate goals will be preserib
II ed for cotton, tobacco, peanuts
I land potatoes if a majority of tin
potato growers vote to have thii
crop included. There will also b
II goals for general depleting crops
1 Provisions for commercial vege
r tables, commercial orchards, am
'' non-crop pasture land will b
about the same as in 1937.
The program will be administ
a ered through state, county ani
t community committees compose.
of farmers, with supervision of ai
s advisory nature given by AA.J
i and extension sen-ice workers.
At the beginning of the croj
year, the maximum amount o
s payment a grower will be able t<
- earn will be calculated. Attaint
- ment of the soil-depleting and tin
- soil-building goals for his fam
a ] will then be set as conditions fo
the full payment of that amount
In determining the soil-deplei
! ing goal for a farm, the commit
f teemcn will consider the acreagi
; of crops usually grown, acreagi
of food and feed crops needed fo
j." home use, good soil management
J tillable acreage on the farm, typi
; of soil', topography, productioi
^ facilities, and crop rotations.
( The soil-building goals will b<
- set up according to the needs o
; the farm for good soil manage
ment through terracing, use o
jf fertilizer, legume crojis, and othe
I* I conservation practices.
; The committeemen and farmer,
would discuss and agree upon tin
? practices needed . A farmer woulc
^ not be required to carry ou
; practices not needed on his farm
Small farms of the subsistenc.
? type would have goals for soil
J depleting crops established at t,i
farm's usual acreage of such crop
K which are primarily needed fo
(T food and feed on the farm.
- Payments for performance wil
; be divided among the producer
on a faim on the same genera
)t basis that proceeds of the crop
1 are divided.
11 While this is the set-up for tlr
^' 19.18 program Floyd pointed ou:
'i it is still dependent upon appro
^ priations from Congress and pos
; | sible future legislation.
