 51 percent of total U.S. land is in agricultural use
(61 percent of lower 48 states).
 Urban land use is 2.7 percent.
► Number of U.S. farms for 2017 is estimated at 2.05 million, down 12,000
farms from 2016.
► Total land in farms, 910 million acres, decreased 1 million from 2016.
► Average farm size for 2017 is 444 acres, up 2 acres from the previous year.
 Farm numbers (and losses) a matter of USDA classification.
 Crop prices had been strong in previous farm bill cycles...

TRADE WAR
U.S. has so far shipped just
201,700 metric tons of soybeans to
China this marketing year (18/19),
a 96 percent drop compared with
the same time last year (4,658,900
metric tons).
China soybean imports
Marketing Year 17/18: 27.7 Million metric tons

 Long history of legislative
engagement with agriculture.
 In general terms there have been
17 Farm Bills, beginning with the
Agricultural Adjustment Act of 1933.
 Farm Bill reauthorized every 5 years--or will revert to 1949 “Permanent Law.”

 There are 3 means for delivering $ to agriculture via Farm Bill.
 Commodity Subsidies, Conservation Programs, Crop Insurance.

4. Risk Management Policy
Context and
Policies
 Conservation Programs expanded
with ‘85 Farm Bill and generally grew
consistently in subsequent Farm Bills
(‘90, ‘96, ’02, ’08).
 Conservation Title contains a suite
of programs.
 Programs meet different goals and
utilize different methods.
Some contraction in programs with
2014 Farm Act.
Wetlands Reserve Program, Farmland Protection Program,
and Grassland Reserve Program (easement) consolidated into:
Agricultural Conservation Easement
Program (ACEP)
Agricultural Water Enhancement Program, Chesapeake Bay
Watershed Program, Cooperative Conservation Partnership
Initiative, Great Lakes Basin Program are consolidated into:
Regional Conservation Partnership
Program (RCPP)
Wildlife Habitat Incentive Program is merged into:
Environmental Quality Incentives
Program (5% dedicated wildlife)
Grassland Reserve Program (rental) is now through:
Conservation Reserve Program
(grassland up to 2 million acres)
 ‘Working lands’
programs are dominant.
Conservation Compliance
Highly Erodible Land (HEL) Compliance, Sodbuster, Wetland Conservation (Swampbuster)
 Public provides financial support via USDA payments.
 Recipients protect soil and wetlands for the public.
 Penalties are reduction or loss of farm program
payments for draining existing wetlands or not
maintaining soil protections.
Ducks Unlimited photo
NRCS photoNRCS photo
 Farm Bills set mandatory
spending levels; appropriators
nonetheless do otherwise.
 Conservation CHIMPS cut
$1.6 billion since 2014 Farm Bill.
 House 2018 bill further
consolidates Conservation
(eliminates CSP)
1. Federal Farm Policy in Context

4. Risk Management Policy
Context and
Policies
 Federal Crop Insurance is subsidized for producers and insurance
companies.
 National average is 62% of premium is paid by subsidy, often even
higher.
 Crop Insurance exempted from compliance in 1996 Farm Bill.
Reinstated in 2014.
From written Testimony of William Cole, Chairman, Crop Insurance Professionals Association- Committee on
Agriculture, Nutrition, and Forestry, July 25, 2017.
 Subsidized risk reduction, without compliance checks and balances,
can incent unintended consequences:
 Producers “leave” the farm
program to avoid compliance.
 Producers may take risks
with land or practices.
 Participation in Crop
Insurance is high across major
commodities.
 Premium subsidies, Revenue
policies have been growing rapidly.
 Fundamental crop insurance formula:
((Yield * Coverage) * price) * acres = Insured Revenue
Yield – Actual Production History (APH)
minimum 4 yrs, maximum 10 yrs
Coverage – percentage of yield/APH insured
like a deductible, select from sequence 50% - 85%
Price – generally, higher of spring/harvest price
average futures prices Feb or Oct
Acres – acres planted to insured crop
optional “units,” e.g. all acres of one crop in county
((185 * 80%) * $4.62) * 500 = $341,880 insured revenue
(185 * $3.49) * 500 = $322,825 actual revenue
$19,055 indemnity

2018 Farm Bill: Context and Policies. University of Minnesota, Colloquium in Sustainable Agriculture 10-25-18 print
 Crop Insurance dominant in Farm Bill policy and budget.
 Extended low-price cycle is challenge to revenue insurance.
 Climate change is challenge to APH (provisions enacted to minimize ‘bad’ years).
2018
 Crop Insurance is lynch pin of Farm Bill policy for farmers; most cited priority in 2018 Farm Bill.
 Presently in dispute: Title I distribution of $; House SNAP; House Title II consolidation.
 Wither 2018 Farm Bill? 1) Lame Duck passage? 2) Extension? 3) New leadership/bill? 4) Epic fail?
 What are U.S. ag’s needs? 1) Resilient Systems, 2) Consumers/Buyers.
