Quota, Allotment. 1
Difference Is '
Explained I
What is the difference between a
wheat acreage allotment and a
wheat 'marketing quota?_
The answer to this question; which
many farmers have asked in con
nection with the 1938 AAA Farm
Program, is given by Fred Wilson,
chairman of the county agricultural
conservation committee, as follows:
Wheat acreage allotments are
made every year. A wheat acreage
allotment is an allotment made to
wheat on his farm. ‘
These allotments do not directly‘
affect the marketing of wheat. Seed-l
ing wheat within the acreage allot-I
ments is entirely Voluntary. How
ever, the acreage allotments are im
portant when wheat loans are of
fered or if marketing quotas go intoi
: effect. Wheat loans are offered;
lonly to cooperators in the program‘
except in years when marketing
quotas go into effect, and then non
cooperators receive loans on part of
their wheat production at lower
rates than those to cooperators. The
wheat acreage allotment for a farm
is used in computing the payment
that a farmer can earn. The pay
ment rate for 1938 is 12 cents a bu.
on the normal yield of the wheat
acreage allotment. 1
Marketing quotas are for use only
in years when surpluses are very
large. A marketing quota is a spec
ified number of bushels of wheat
worked out for a farmer on the,
basis of his acreage allotment, if ;
supplies in any year are unusually‘
large and quotas are in effect. No'
marketing quota can go into effect
unless approved by a two-thirds ma
jority of farmers voting in a refer-i
endum. Under marketing quotas
[each farmer holds a part of his crop
off the market in order to do his
share in improving marketing con
ditions for the part that is market
ed. Marketing quotas apply to all
wheat farmers whose market pro
duction is more than 100 bushels.
