99 STAT. 1391

"(2)(A)(i) If a wheat acreage limitation program is announced under paragraph (1), such limitation shall be achieved by applying a uniform percentage reduction to the wheat crop acreage base for the crop for each wheat-producing farm. "(ii) If the Secretary elects to determine the established price for wheat applicable to producers as provided in subsection (c)(l)(H)(i), the limitation on the acreage planted to wheat shall be achieved by applying the percentage reductions selected by producers under subsection (c)(l)(H)(i) to the crop acreage base for each wheat-producing farm. (B) Except as provided in subsection (g), producers who knowingly produce wheat in excess of the permitted wheat acreage for the farm shall be ineligible for wheat loans, purchases, and payments with respect to that farm. "(C) Wheat crop acreage bases for each crop of wheat shall be determined under title V. "(D)(i) A number of acres on the farm shall be devoted to conservation uses, in accordance with regulations issued by the Secretary. Such number shall be determined by dividing— "(I) the product obtained by multiplying the number of acres required to be withdrawn from the production of wheat times the number of acres planted to such commodity; by "(II) the number of acres authorized to be planted to such commodity under the limitation established by the Secretary. "(ii) The number of acres so determined is hereafter in this subsection referred to as 'reduced acreage'. "(E) If an acreage limitation program is announced under paragraph (1) for a crop of wheat, subsection (d) shall not be applicable to such crop, including any prior announcement that may have been made under such subsection with respect to such crop. Except as otherwise provided in subsection (c)(l)(C), the individual farm program acreage shall be the acreage planted on the farm to wheat for harvest within the permitted wheat acreage for the farm as established under this paragraph. "(3)(A) If a set-aside program is announced under paragraph (1), as a condition of eligibility for loans, purchases, and payments for wheat authorized by this Act (except as provided in subsection (g)), the producers on a farm must— "(i) set aside and devote to conservation uses an acreage of cropland equal to a specified percentage, as determined by the Secretary, of the acreage of wheat planted for harvest for the crop for which the set-aside is in effect; and "(ii) otherwise comply with the terms of such program. "(B) The set-aside acreage shall be devoted to conservation uses, in accordance with regulations issued by the Secretary. "(C) If a set-aside program is established, the Secretary may limit the acreage planted to wheat. Such limitation shall be applied on a uniform basis to all wheat-producing farms. "(D) The Secretary may make such adjustments in individual setaside acreages under this paragraph as the Secretary determines necessary— "(i) to correct for abnormal factors affecting production; and "(ii) to give due consideration to tillable acreage, crop-rotation practices, types of soil, soil and water conservation measures, topography, and such other factors as the Secretary determines necessary.
