Excerpt from the report summary: This is a report of a study of the 1963 Pilot Cropland Conversion Program (CCP) in five areas after its first year of operation . The five areas included one each in North Dakota, Iowa, and Mississippi, and two in Georgia. Most of the land under agreements will remain in the program for 5 years. About a third of the land in North Dakota and a tenth of the land in Georgia will remain in the program for 10 years. Payment for conversion ranged from $8 an acre for the poorest land in the program in North Dakota to $70 an acre for the best land in the program in Iowa.
