000155423 520__ $$aThe ‘‘Aggie Bond’’ program was established in the 1980s to provide beginning and lowequity
farmers access to capital. The bonds, which pay tax-exempt interest, may be used by
qualifying famers for purchases of farm real estate and equipment. Using Aggie Bond data
collected from states and Census of Agriculture data spanning 25 years, we examine whether
the program has had an impact on farm entrance, land ownership, and the size of operation.
We do not find strong evidence that the program led to an increase in the proportion of
beginning farmers; however, we find limited evidence the program helped beginning farmers
become full land owners as well as increased the rate of growth in the proportion of beginning
farmers who are full land owners.
