(A) cut corn (including mutilated corn) that the producers have produced in such crop year; or
(B) purchase or exchange corn (including mutilated corn) that has been produced in such crop year by another producer (including a producer that is not participating in an acreage limitation or set-aside program for such crop established by the Secretary); and
(2) participate in an acreage limitation or set-aside program for such crop of corn established by the Secretary.
