SEC. 121. Section 334 of the Agricultural Adjustment Act of 1938, as amended, is amended by inserting (1) after (c) and adding a new subparagraph (2) following subparagraph (c)(1) to read as follows: "(2) Notwithstanding any other provision of law, each old or new farm acTcage allotment for the 1962 crop of wheat as determined on the basis of a minimum national acreage allotment of fifty-five million acres shall be reduced by 10 per centum. I n the event notices of farm acreage allotments for the 1962 crop of wheat have been mailed to farm operators prior to the effective date of this subparagraph (2), new notices showing the required reduction shall be mailed to farm operators as soon as practicable." SEC. 122. (a) I n lieu of the provisions of item (1) of Public Law 74, Sevcuty-seventh Congress, as amended (Y U.S.C. 1340(1)), the following provisions shall apply to the 1962 crop of wheat: " ( i j j f a national marketing quota for wheat is in effect for the marketing year beginning July 1, 1962, farm marketing quotas shall be in effect for the crop of wheat which is normally harvested in 1962. The farm marketing quota for such crop of wheat shall be the actual production of the acreage planted to such crop of wheat on the farm less the farm marketing excess. The farm marketing excess shall be an amount equal to twice the normal yield of wheat per acre established for the farm multiplied by the number of acres of such crop of wheat on the farm in excess of the farm acreage allotment for such crop unless the producer, in accordance with regulations prescribed by the Secretary and within the time prescribed therein, establishes to the satisfaction of the Secretary the actual production of such crop of wheat on the farm. If such actual production is so established, the farm marketing excess shall be such actual production less the actual production of the farm wheat acreage allotment based upon the average yield per acre for the entire 1962 wheat acreage on the farm: Provided, however, That the farm marketing excess shall not be larger than the amount by which the actual production, so established, exceeds the normal production of the farm wheat acreage allotment." (b) Notwithstanding the pTovisious of item (2) of Public Law 74, Seventy-seventh Congress, as amended (7 U.S.C. 1340(2)), the rate of penalty on wheat of the 1962 crop shall be 65 per centum of the parity price per bushel of wheat as of May 1, 1962. (c) In lieu of the provisions of item (3) of Public Law 74, Seventyseventh Congress, as amended (7 U.S.C. 1340(3)), the following provisions shall apply to the 1962 crop of wheat: "^3) The farm marketing excess for wheat shall be regarded as available for marketing, and the penalty and the storage amount or amounts of wheat to be delivered to the Secretary shall be computed upon twice the normal production of the excess acreage. If the farm marketing excess so computed is adjusted downward on the basis of actual production as heretofore provided the difference between the amount of the penalty or storage computed on the basis of twice the normal production and as computed on actual production shall be returned to or allowed the producer or a corresponding adjustment made in the amount to be delivered to the Secretary if the producer
