2014 Farm Bill Crop Commodity Program Payments in Idaho
June 29, 2020
The 2014 Farm Bill initiated revenue support programs for crop farmers (ARC-CO, ARC-IC and PLC). This study determines whether or not the bill functioned as expected. It investigates how ARC-CO and PLC payment patterns subsequently changed for Idaho farmers (between 2014 and 2018) and whether price or yield influenced payments to those growing barley and wheat specifically. The statewide overview should aid producers' use of the bill's programs.
