according to ASC chairman ..Novile
The Soil Bank is a new feature of
the national farm program1 author
ized under the farm bill recently en
acted. Its objective is to encourage
farmers to reduce crop acreages and
thus help overcome farm surpluses
that are depressing the, market,
Of particular concern jn this area
at this time is the Acreage; Reserve
program for tobacco. 'Even though
1956 tobacco planting has been com
pleted, producers can make adjust
ments and earn Soil Bank payments
this year, Mr. Hawkins" said.- He
emphasized, however, that "no farm
er should attempt to comply ? with
out checking at the county office
and signing an of ficial agreement
with the Department of Agriculture.
Under the. Acreage Reserve feature
of the Soil Bank,' the fanner earns
payments by reducing hi) v tobacco
acreage below his acreage allotment
and holding these acres out of pro
duction. The amount in reserve is
up to the farmer within certain lim
itations. For the purpose of 'com
puting future allotments, '.the- farm
er will receive credit1. for this re

co had been grown, on it..,-'V

The compensation rate on bjBrley

es (hail, floods, droughti ete.) '-will
be based on the SMALLER bff the
appraised yield or the normal1 yield
for the farm times 18 cents :5er

destroyed due to natural' causes,
that the appraised (estimated) yield
would be based on the actual condi
tion of the crop AFTER the dam
age or destruction took place ,,and
that in the case of total destruction
the appraised yield would be zero..
Mr. Hawkins said that some farm-1
ers who had damage due to hail or
flood had the impression that the
compensation would be based on the
severity of the damage whereas in
reality according to the regulations
the compensation would be on the
appraised yield of what was left
after the damage occurred. '
The Acreage Reserve payment for
tobacco is determined by multiply
ing a rate per pound times the nor
mal yield of the farm times the
acreage placed in the reserve. The
maximum payment per acre which
can be earned is based on a yield off

If the producer is disposing of
