Title: Economic Impacts in North Carolina of a Peanut Support Price and Quota Reduction
Authors: Martin, Laura L.

Issue Date: 1996
Abstract: Excessive government losses and pressure from end users of peanuts have increased the likelihood of a peanut support price and quota reduction in the 1995 farm bill. This study analyzes the economic impacts of reducing the national quota support price on North Carolina farm income and rural communities. Effects of policies that reduce quota support price for Virginia-type peanuts from $675 per ton to levels of $600 and $500 per ton are estimated. Reductions in the quota support price have significant impacts on quota owners and peanut producing regions. A 10 percent reduction in quota and a $500 support price would result in a $43 million income reduction to North Carolina.
