Initial payments under the 1973 wheat and feed grain program have placed about $270,000 in the hands of Campbell County participating farmers in the past month, according to Mrs. Bernice Carlton, county executive director for the local ASC’s program, who added that plans for the 1974 program can begin now without setting aside any crop lands from planting. Payments for the 1973 program were figured at 68 cents per bushel, the amount which the national average of $2.62 per bushel, lacked of achieving the parity price of $3.30 per bushel, Mrs. Carlton said. There will be no additional parity payments make in 1973 unless the national average falls below $2.62 during the five-month period from July 1 through Nov. 30, she said.
