[QUOTE]Originally posted by glassman: [QB] the MS Delta has historiclly grown cotton... The cotton subsidies got wiped out under a law suit by Brazil and few other countries. the last couple years they planted corn heavily.but the corn subsidy has been severely reduced (it is not gone) so if you plant corn, you have to roate beans in also... peanuts are being tried, but it'll be a coule years before we know if they will actually work here or not... the whole farming industry in the US has been so subsidised that it cracks me up when i hear anybody whining about food stamps (which are actually a farm subsidy too, food stamps actually keep the price of corn higher than it would be without them....) and unemployment benefits and "welfare". if the general public actaully knew that the US Govt pays farmers to lose money growing corn? they'd freak... and that when we pay the farmers to lose money on a per bushel basis? the farmers actaully grow MORE at a bigger loss... in the end? food production really is about natioanl security and we haven't really "done wrong", it's jsut that the system no longer supports "Family Farming" at all. it's gone...... i'm afraid this is all about to come crashing down on the country tho- [b] Taxpayers Turn U.S. Farmers Into Fat Cats With Subsidies By David J. Lynch & Alan Bjerga - Sep 9, 2013 1:11 PM CT Even as manufacturers and retailers struggle to rebound from the recession that ended four years ago, farm equity ended 2012 at $2.5 trillion, up 37 percent since the start of the recession in December 2007 -- compared with a less than 1 percent gain in net worth for all U.S. households over the same period.
