1995 Farm Bill: Issues, Options, and an Analytical Framework for Integrated Economic and Environmental Policy Assessment, The
A viable agricultural policy should adapt to any changes occurring within the agricultural sector. With the growing focus on environmentally friendly agriculture, increased role for markets by reducing the influence of farm programs, agricultural-related global climate change, and budgetary pressures, the 1995 Farm Bill can lead the reorienting of farm policies toward achieving these goals and thus preserve the leadership role of the U.S. agricultural sector. The 1995 Farm Bill should enable farmers to retain their competitive edge in the increasingly free global market and also should protect the environment and rural communities. This paper identified key issues and the available options for the upcoming Farm Bill discussions.
