Wheat producers in Utah have a choice in participating in the 1987 government wheat program. The sign up period is from October 1, 1986, to March 31, 1987. Advance deficiency payments are available upon signing up. The advance payment will be 40 percent of the projected deficiency rate at this time. For most growers it appears that participation in the program will again be much more profitable than nonparticipation. But it would be advised that you calculate the details for your own farm based on data in Table land worksheets (Tabl es 2 and 3) or similar ways to estimate the with and without conditions.
