office has announced a delay in
CRP payments due to budget

was announced Sept. 30, the
possibility of a reduction had

payment cannot be guaranteed.
Payments were scheduled to
be made Oct. 1, but the final CRP

be enacted by Oct. 20 and
following enactment, the law

The ASCS office said they
regretted the necessary delay of
the payments and hopes to make
100 per cent of payments due,
possibly as early as Nov. 1.
