FG staff Published on 16 August 2013
Which farm support program should be cut?

In the most recent FG Poll, we asked readers: If farm supports were further cut to reduce federal spending, which program should be cut the most?

Nearly 50 percent of readers who responded said farm subsidies for commodity crops should be cut most.

Another 29 percent said food aid to low-income American families should be cut. Conservation programs protecting farm and water quality received the fewest votes at just more than 6 percent and nearly 3 percent, respectively. FG
