Why Was Acre a No-Go with Iowa Farmers?
AbstractAbstract� In 2009 Iowa farmers had the opportunity to enroll in a new revenue support program called ACRE.� A survey showed that those who did enroll desired more risk protection and believed that payments from ACRE would exceed the value of direct payments forfeited.� Operators who did not enroll said the program was too complex, and they did not want to give up a portion of the direct payments.� Those who enrolled farmed more acres and depended more on crop production for their gross income, and were more likely to use crop insurance and pre-harvest pricing.�
