Bs. As., 30/4/71
VISTO that it is convenient to set prices for the next harvest of grains, and
That the State has pursued in recent decades a policy of orientation of the agricultural sector through pricing, both for the fine and thick harvest.
It is the purpose of the State to set the prices of the grains of the crops 1971/72, in the most timely time.
That in this way the agricultural sector can properly plan its production.
That the experience gathered in previous campaigns should be used to establish in the present decree those marketing systems that best serve the interests of the country's production and generals.
It is therefore desirable to establish minimum and mandatory prices for all stages of marketing, so that the purposes of support for the agricultural sector that constitute a State policy cannot be reversed.
That with regard to the so-called "administration expenses" it is essential to set a criterion that provides the maximum security of negotiation to the producer and eliminate any confusion factor in the marketing of grains.
Pursuant to article 9 (t) of the Decree-Law No. 6,698 of 9 August 1963, the National Grain Board is the agency created to defend agricultural production and to intervene in the commercialization of grains whenever the National Executive has so provided.
