Requires the Secretary of Agriculture, in carrying out the Soil Conservation and Domestic Allotment Act, to make payments or grants of other aid to agricultural producers, including tenants and sharecroppers, in an aggregate amount not less than the sums appropriated therefor during the year with respect to which such payments or grants are made and measured by: (1) their treatment or use of their land, or part thereof, for soil restoration, soil conservation, or the prevention of erosion; (2) changes in the use of their land; (3) their equitable share, as determined by the Secretary, of the normal national production of any commodity or commodities required for domestic consumption; (4) their equitable share, as determined by the Secretary, of the national production of any commodity or commodities required for domestic consumption and exports adjusted to reflect the extent to which their utilization of cropland on the farm conforms to farming practices which the Secretary determines will best effectuate the purposes of the Act; or (5) any combination of the above.
