Prairie grains policy criticized By JIM NEAVES Canadian Press Staff Writer Federal government plans to level out the roller-coaster cycle of Prairie farm income have critics who say the new roadbed will be too expensive tor grain producers. Otto Lang, m i n 1 s t e r In charge of the Canadian wheat board, unveiled the plans in his Prairie groins policy and said the government expects to pay more than $100. million to farmers on the Prairies during the 1970-71 crop year to bring their incomes up to the average for the last five years. There are other aspects to the policy, but the proposal to stabilize farm incomes has evoked the most response so far from the industry which has been asked to make comment and suggestions. A fund, to which farmers would contribute annually on a checkoff system, is not designed as income insurance for individual farmers but for the grains industry in total. The government wants the plan to be effective for the crop year which started Aug. 1, 1970, and intends to introduce legislation in the spring. VOICE MISGIVINGS There has been some agreement on the concept of the policy, but most industry spokesmen express some misgivings-in particular that in implementing the policy the government will eliminate some of its present agriculture support programs. Alf Gleave, MP for Saskatoon-Bigg ar and New Democratic Party federal farm critic, said the policy appears to be a program to get the government out of paying substantial subsidies to farmers. The policy calls for the elimination of the Temporary Wheat Reserves Act under which the federal government pays storage charges on all wheat in excess of 178 million bushels. During the last 15 years these payments have averaged $36 million a year and under the new policy wheat producers would have to finance the storage of their own grain. Grain fanners also will be responsible for finance charges when the federal government stops subsidizing intermediate-term interest rates on grain sales made to countries unable to pay prevailing interest rates. However, the federal government will guarantee payment by the buying country and will continue to pay the financing costs on .long-term-over three years -agreements. BASED ON AVERAGE When the program was initially announced, assumptions were that it would mean a guaranteed annual income for individual farmers. Later, Mr. Lang clarified the policy, saying the fund graens industry on an over-all Under the policy the defi dency in income for any one year compared with the indue-try's total income averaged over the previous five-year period would be made up from the stabilization fund. Mr. Lang said the average contribution by the farm community to the fund could be about three per cent of the industry's gross receipts and, based on both good and bad years, the government's contribution might amount to four per cent of these receipts. Farmers' contributions would begin Aug. 1,1971. This is a contentious Idea because agricultural spokesmen say Prairie grain producers, who face ever-increasing production costs end lower prices for their products, can't afford to participate in the fund. D. T. McFarlane, Saskatchewan's agriculture minister, said grain producers in his province, in the face of this year's sagging income, would be hard-pressed to contribute even one per cent to the fund. He suggested the government take another look at this part of the producer-participation in the program. A. M. Rundrcan of Winnipeg, United Grain Growers president, also expressed concern that the benefits will be paid on the basis of the industry's over-all income and not that of individual producers. H. B. Sneath of Winnipeg, Manitoba Pool Elevators president, said the cost of the plan may be too high and that the program is being proposed at a time when the average for the last five years will be low. "The costs paid by the Western farmers may be much too heavy unless the federal government pays a fair and proper share as it does in support of other industries," he said. E. K. Turner of Regina, Saskatchewan Wheat Pool president, agreed farm incomes should be more stable but questioned whether the federal plan will support the industry's income at a higher or lower level. Agriculture Minister Henry Ruste of Alberta said any federal support should be at a "realistic" level. OVERLOOK NET FIGURE Charles Munro of Ottawa, Canadian Federation of Agriculture president, said the federal government appears concerned with the gross income of the grains industry rather than the more important net income. "Stabilization of gross receipts is one thing while adequate income from sales is quite a different matter and one which does not appear to be accounted for by the federal proposition." G. L. Harrold, Alberta Wheat Pool president, said he was "alarmed and surprised" that' Ottawa wanted to withdraw from co-operative participation with grain producers to the extent outlined by Mr. Lang. ;
