The U.S. Department of Agriculture's concern with price-support and adjustment legislation is carried out under a series of interrelated laws passed by Congress from 1933 to 1978. Beginning with the major proposals of the twenties for handling and marketing farm surpluses, this expanded history (necessitated by the passage of the Food and Agriculture Act of 1977 and the Emergency Assistance Act of 1978) records the establishment of the Federal Farm Board in 1929, continues with the Agricultural Adjustment Acts of 1933 and 1938, and traces price-support and adjustment legislation through 1978. These, and subsequent proposals and actions, are important because they are the foundation for implementing current and future farm legislation.
