Small Farmer To Gain
From 1940 AAA Program
A greater opportunity for small
farmers to participate will one
of the most important features of
the 1940 AAA program, accordintr
to E. Y. Floyd. AAA executive
officer at State college.
Likewise, soil conservation will
have increased emphasis, in view
of its phenomenal progress dur
ing the past few. years. As in
other years, the responsibility of
administration will continue in the
hands bf farmer committees. ;
An important recommendation
made at a recent Washington con
ference which Floyd attended, and
one which should help small farm
ers take part in the program, was
that there be established a min
imum soil-building allowance of
$20 per farm.
Another important recommenda
tion would allow farmers to earn
up to $30 per farm for tree
planting, in addition to the regu
lar soil building allowance for the
Floyd also said state and local
AAA committeemen will have
more responsibility for the field
administration of . crop insurance
and loans. This is in line with the
establishment AAA policy of de
centralizing administration of the
program wherever possible.
"This year," Floyd stated, "the
national conference was held a
month earlier than last. This will
give farmers in 1940 a better
chance than ever to know well in
advance of the planting season
what ,the program has to offer
Recommendations adopted at the
recent national conference of AAA
officials will be used for drafting
specific provisions of the 1940 pro
gram. In general, it will continue
along the same lines as the 1939
program. Changes recommended
are those which will simplify ad
ministration and make the pro
gram more effective from the
standpoint of soil conservation.
