A BILL
To provide for an acreage limitation program for the 1991 crop of wheat.
  Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United
  States of America in Congress assembled,
SECTION 1. MINIMUM ACREAGE LIMITATION FOR THE 1991 CROP OF WHEAT.
  Notwithstanding any other provision of law, in any program to support
  the price of the 1991 crop of wheat under the Agricultural Act of 1949
  (7 U.S.C. 1421 et seq.), or any similar authority, the Secretary of
  Agriculture shall, if marketing quotas are not in effect, provide for an
  acreage limitation program for wheat producers participating in the price
  support program under which the acreage permitted to be planted to wheat
  for harvest on a farm shall be limited to the wheat crop acreage base for
  the farm for the crop reduced by not less than 15 percent.
SEC. 2. PAID LAND DIVERSION FOR THE 1991 CROP OF WHEAT.
  (a) ESTABLISHMENT- Notwithstanding any other provision of law, the Secretary
  shall implement a land diversion program for the 1991 crop of wheat under
  which the Secretary shall offer payments to any producer of the 1991 crop
  of wheat who--
  (1) reduces the acreage on the farm planted to wheat for harvest so that
  it does not exceed the wheat crop acreage base for the farm less an amount
  equivalent to 5 percent of the wheat crop acreage base (in addition to
  the acreage reduction required under section 1); and
  (2) devotes to approved conservation uses an acreage of cropland equivalent
  to the reduction required from wheat crop acreage base under this section.
  (b) COMPUTATION OF PAYMENTS- Payments under subsection (a) shall be made
  in an amount computed by multiplying--
  (1) the diversion payment rate; by
  (2) the acreage diverted under this section; by
  (3) the farm program payment yield for the crop.
  (c) PAYMENT RATE- The diversion payment rate shall be set at not less
  than the final deficiency payment rate for the 1991 crop of wheat, as
  established under any program to support the price of the 1991 crop of
  wheat under the Agricultural Act of 1949 or any similar authority.
  (d) ADVANCE DIVERSION PAYMENTS- A portion of the payment made available
  under this section shall be made available at the time a producer elects
  to receive land diversion payments under this section. Such advance payment
  shall be equivalent to any advance deficiency payment made under any program
  to support the price of the 1991 crop of wheat under the Agricultural Act
  of 1949 or any similar authority.
  (e) FINAL DIVERSION PAYMENTS- The final diversion payment made available
  under this section shall be made available at the time of, and be equivalent
  to, any final deficiency payment made under any program to support the
  price of the 1991 crop of wheat under the Agricultural Act of 1949 or any
  similar authority.
