The Evolution of the U.S. Farm Bill

ABSTRACT The enabling of a US Farm Bill affects not only American farmers, but producers and consumers across the world. The passage of the current farm bill has been marked by unusually contentious political infighting resulting in significant delay and, at the time of writing, uncertainty about the outcome. The author predicts ‘stark changes’ for US producers, with a drastically reduced safety net should market prices fall.
