their farm operating arrangements. All landholders whose entire 
westwide landholdings total 40 acres or less are exempt from the 
requirement to submit RRA forms. Landholders who are ``qualified 
recipients'' have RRA forms submittal thresholds of 80 acres or 240 
acres depending on the district's RRA forms submittal threshold 
category where the land is held. Only farm operators who provide 
multiple services to more than 960 acres held in trusts or by legal 
entities are required to submit forms.
