The medium of payment shall be determined by the Secretary. If payments are made in wheat, the value of the payments in cash shall be converted to wheat at the market price of wheat as determined by Commodity Credit Corporation. Wheat received as payment-in-kind may be marketed without penalty but shall not be eligible for price support. (c)(1) Producers who divert acreage on the farm under subsection (a) may divert additional acreage on the farm not in excess of the larger of three times the amount diverted under subsection (a) or such acreage as will bring the total acreage diverted to 10 acres: Provided, That the total acreage diverted under subsection (a) and this subsection (c) shall not exceed the larger of (i) the highest actual acreage of wheat planted on the farm for harvest for any of the years 1959, 1960, or 1961, but not to exceed 10 acres or (ii) the 1962 wheat acreage allotment. (2) Payments shall be made with respect to the acreage diverted under this subsection (c) in accordance with the terms and conditions prescribed in subsection (a): Provided, That (i) 60 per centum shall be substituted for 45 per centum in computing the amount of the payment, (ii) the acreage diverted under this subsection (c) shall be added to and deemed to be acreage diverted under subsection (a) for the purposes of paragraphs (2) and (3) of subsection (a), and (iii) if the diversion under subsection (a) is made pursuant to (1)(i) of said subsection, the actual acreage planted to wheat for harvest on the farm in 1962, shall be reduced below the highest actual acreage of wheat planted on the farm for harvest in any of the years 1959, 1960, or 1961, by the total amount of acres diverted under subsection (a) and this subsection (c), or, if the diversion under subsection (a) is made pursuant to (1) (ii) of said subsection, the 1962 wheat acreage on the farm shall be reduced by the total amount of acres diverted under subsection (a) and this subsection (c) below whichever of the following acreages is the larger— (A) the farm acreage allotment for the 1962 crop of wheat which would be in effect except for the reduction thereof as provided in section 334(c)(2) of the Agricultural Adjustment Act of 1938, as amended; (B) the highest actual acreage of wheat planted on the farm for harvest for any of the years 1959, 1960, or 1961, but not to exceed fifteen acres. (d) Any acreage diverted from the production of wheat to conservation uses for which payment is made under the program formulated pursuant to this section shall be in addition to any acreage diverted to conservation uses for which payment is made under any other Federal program except that the foregoing shall not preclude the making of cost-sharing payments under the agricultural conservation program or the Great Plains program for conservation practices carried out on any acreage devoted to soil-conserving uses under the program formulated pursuant to this section. (e) The Secretary may provide for adjusting any payment on account of failure to comply with the terms and conditions of the program formulated under this section. (f) Not to exceed 50 per centum of any payment to producers under this section may be made in advance of determination of performance.
