SUBSIDY ON MAIZE

INCREASE OF GO A BUSHEL, Parliamentary Reporter. WELLINGTON, this day. The Government has agreed to an increase of sixpence a bushel in the subsidy to be paid for the 1946 season on maize marketed through the Maize Marketing Committee, according to an announcement tonight by the Minister of Marketing, Mr. Roberts. The Minister added that maize growers' costs had increased during the past year and to meet these increases and to encourage maize growers to do their utmost to plant an increased area in maize this spring, it had been decided to increase the subsidy, making the total subsidy payable next year ]/G a bushel, or a price to growers ranging from 7/ a bushel in July up to 7/8 a bushel in March.

With this substantial 'subsidy and the active co-operation of maize growers in all producing areas, particularly in the Poverty Bay and Bay of Plenty districts, it was hoped that an area would be planted this season sufficient to meet all the maize requirements of the Dominion. In view of the world-wide shortage of all feeding stuffs, it was most desirable that every possible effort should be made by growers and merchants to achieve the maize target of 12,000 acres.
