Description
 
Congress periodically establishes agricultural and food policy in an omnibus farm bill. The 112th Congress faces reauthorization of the current five-year farm bill (the Food, Conservation, and Energy Act of 2008, P.L. 110-246) because many of its provisions expire in 2012. The breadth of farm bills has steadily grown in recent decades to include new and expanding food and agricultural interests. The omnibus nature of the bill can create broad coalitions of support among sometimes conflicting interests for policies that individually might not survive the legislative process. It also can stir fierce competition for available funds, particularly among producers of different commodities, or between those who have differing priorities for farm subsidies, conservation, nutrition, or other programs. Contents of this report: What Is the Farm Bill?; Budget Situation and Outlook; Farm Economy and International Environment; Farm Safety Net Programs; Specialty Crops and Organic Production; Animal Agriculture; Agricultural Credit; Agricultural Trade and Export Promotion; Conservation and Environment; Food and Nutrition; International Food Aid; Agricultural Research; Rural Development; Energy; Forestry. Figures and tables. This is a print on demand report.
