99 STAT. 1389

"(ii) The individual farm program acreage shall not be further reduced by application of the allocation factor if the producers reduce the acreage of wheat planted for harvest on the farm from the crop acreage base established for the farm under title V by at least the percentage recommended by the Secretary in the proclamation of the national program acreage. "(iii) The Secretary shall provide fair and equitable treatment for producers on farms on which the acreage of wheat planted for harvest is less than the crop acreage base established for the farm under title V, but for which the reduction is insufficient to exempt the farm from the application of the allocation factor. "(iv) In establishing the allocation factor for wheat, the Secretary may make such adjustment as the Secretary deems necessary to take into account the extent of exemption of farms under the foregoing provisions of this paragraph. "(B) For any crop of wheat for which marketing quotas are in effect, the individual farm program acreage shall be the acreage on the farm that the Secretary determines is sufficient to produce the quantity of wheat equal to the farm marketing quota established for the farm under section 334 of the Agricultural Adjustment Act of 1938. "(e) The farm program payment yields for farms for each crop of wheat shall be determined under title V. "(f)(l)(A)(i) Notwithstanding any other provision of this Act, except as provided in subparagraphs (B) through (E), if the Secretary determines that the total supply of wheat, in the absence of an acreage limitation or set-aside program, will be excessive taking into account the need for an adequate carryover to maintain reasonable and stable supplies and prices and to meet a national emergency, the Secretary may provide for any crop of wheat for which marketing quotas are not in effect either an acreage limitation program as described in paragraph (2) or a set-aside program as described in paragraph (3). "(ii) In making a determination under clause (i), the Secretary shall take into consideration the number of acres placed in the conservation acreage reserve established under section 1231 of the Food Security Act of 1985. "(iii) If the Secretary elects to put either of such programs into effect for any crop year, the Secretary shall announce such program not later than June 1 prior to the calendar year in which the crop is harvested, except that in the case of the 1986 crop, the Secretary shall announce such program as soon as practicable after the date of enactment of the Food Security Act of 1985. "(iv) Not later than July 31 of the year previous to the year in which the crop is harvested, the Secretary may make adjustments in the program announced under clause (iii) if the Secretary determines that there has been a significant change in the total supply of wheat since the program was first announced. "(B) In the case of the 1986 crop of wheat, if the Secretary estimates, as soon as practicable after the date of enactment of the Food Security Act of 1985, that the quantity of wheat on hand in the United States on the first day of the marketing year for that crop (not including any quantity of wheat of that crop) will be— "(i) more than 1,000,000,000 bushels, the Secretary shall pro' vide for— .(s.
