Grain corn is harvested with a regular combine and the hernels are used in the livestock feed and liquor distilling industries. The new program will provide farmers with three cents for every bushel produced over 60 bushels per acre. If a farmer grows a grain corn crop that produces 100 bushels per he will receive an extra incentive payment of per acre. This incentive is in addition to the provincial government program of 30 cents per bushel to encourage farmers to grow grain corn this year. This is part of a four-year program started in 1973 and scheduled to end during the 1976 crop year. Blair vice-chairman of the corn said this morning the combined incentive programs will be limited to per acre or about 105 bushels per acre. An application form indicating acreages for each farmer must be submitted to the local district agriculturist's offices by July 1 to qualify for the new incentive grant. The applications will be available at district agriculturist offices May 15. Mr. Shaw said the new incentive likely won't help to boost the total grain corn acreage in Southern Alberta. In 1973 about acres of grain corn were grown in the area. It will encourage good corn producers to improve their yields. When farmers find out high grain corn yields can be more will get into grain corn production.
