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 farm. 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 them." 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.
