99 STAT. 1385

"(C)(i) If an acreage limitation program under subsection (f)(2) is in effect for a crop of wheat and the producers on a farm devote a portion of the permitted wheat acreage of the farm (as determined in accordance with subsection (fK2XA)) equal to more than 8 percent of the permitted wheat acreage of the farm for the crop to conservation uses or nonprogram crops— "(I) such portion of the permitted wheat acreage of the farm in excess of 8 percent of such acreage devoted to conservation uses or nonprogram crops shall be considered to be planted to wheat for the purpose of determining the individual farm program acreage in accordance with subsection (f)(2)(E) and for the purpose of determining the acreage on the farm required to be devoted to conservation uses in accordance with subsection (fK2XD); and "(II) the producers shall be eligible for payments under this paragraph on such acreage, subject to the compliance of the producers with clause (ii). "(ii) To be eligible for payments under clause (i), except as provided in clauses (iii) and (vii), the producers on the farm must actually plant wheat for harvest on at least 50 percent of the permitted wheat acreage of the farm. "(iii) If a State or local agency has imposed in an area of a State or county a quarantine on the planting of wheat for harvest on farms in such area, the State committee established under section 8(b) of the Soil Conservation and Domestic Allotment Act (16 U.S.C. 590h(b)) may recommend to the Secretary that payments be made under this paragraph, without regard to the requirement imposed under clause (ii), to producers in such area who were required to forgo the planting of wheat for harvest on acreage to alleviate or eliminate the condition requiring such quarantine. If the Secretary determines that such condition exists, the Secretary may make payments under this paragraph to such producers. To be eligible for payments under this clause, such producers may not plant feed grains, cotton, rice, or soybeans on such acreage. "(iv) The wheat crop acreage base and wheat farm program payment yield of the farm shall not be reduced due to the fact that such portion of the permitted acreage of the farm was devoted to conserving uses or nonprogram crops. "(v) Other than as provided in clauses (i) through (iv), payments may not be made under this paragraph for any crop on a greater acreage than the acreage actually planted to wheat. "(vi) Any acreage considered to be planted to wheat in accordance with clause (i) may not also be designated as conservation use acreage for the purpose of fulfilling any provisions under any acreage limitation, set-aside program, or land diversion program requiring that the producers devote a specified acreage to conservation uses. "(vii) This subparagraph shall not apply if the established price for wheat is determined pursuant to subparagraph (H)(i). "(D)(i) Except as provided in clause (ii), the payment rate for wheat shall be the amount by which the established price for the crop of wheat exceeds the higher of— "(I) the national weighted average market price received by producers during the first 5 months of the marketing year for such crop, as determined by the Secretary; or
