The Billings County Pioneer VOLUME XXXVII MEDORA, BILLINGS COUNTY, NORTH DAKOTA THURSDAY, MARCH 15, 1962 NUMBER 42 ,{. Growers Warned Of Excess Acreage Farmers who will have excess wheat acreage in 1962 were re-: minded today lat failure to dis- pose of the excess in accordance with program provisions could have a number of adverse effects ----on the armer&apos;s pocketbook and on his farm's acreage history. A wheat grower not only would be inelfgible for price support and any payments he might oth- erwise have earned under the 1962 wheat stabi}izaticynt program, but he also vuld be subject toil marketing quota penalties which] are much higher for 1962 than in] former years, and his farm's fu- ture wheat allotments might be reduced.Regardin,g marketing q u o " a il penaRies on "excess" wheat, legislation enacted last year made material changes regarding ex-! cess wheat of the 1962 crop. The! penalty has been raised to 65 percent of parity as of May 1,1 1962 ('instead of the previous 45 1 percent), and the amoun of - xCaeat subject to penalty will be  twice the farvn normal yield on all of the acres in excess of the allotment. If the proved 1962 actual yield is less than this amouw, a reduction in the amount of the excess, based on atual production, will be made if a request is filed before a set deadline. "Ecess" wheat results when the grower does not comply with the farm wheat allotment (or the marketing quota exemption acreage, if this is larger). The marketing quota exemption acreage is the smaller of (a)13.5 acres or Ub) the highest acreage of wheat on the rm in any of the crop years 1959, 1960 or 1961.

Stubblemulch Used To Control Erosion A combination of pattern type windbreaks and stubblemulching on fallow is doing a good Job of controlling wind erosion or the Christenson brothers, Lee and VCalter, of Kenmare. For the pas several years they have carried on a good job of stubblemulhing on summerfal- low, which has reduced wind erosion considerably. Wind ero- sion was especially a problem in 1959 and serious damage result- ed on a field they had. purchased the previous year. Last year they egan a pattern type tree planting which event- ually will cover most of their cropland. Three quarters were included in the plantings last year, with windbreaks every 40 rods.
