Effects Of Alternative Acreage Restriction Provisions On Alabama Cotton Farms


  • Mims, Anne M.
  • Duffy, Patricia A.
  • Young, George J.


The 1985 Farm Bill departs from recent farm bills in moving toward more restrictive acreage control. The change from a two- to a five-year average in calculating base acreage and enforcement of limited cross-compliance appear to significantly alter crop mix decisions on representative Alabama cotton farms.
