Choices: The Magazine of Food, Farm, and Resource Issues, 2018, vol. 33, issue 1

Abstract: This article uses financial information from Iowa farms to explore the relationship between ARC-CO payments and farm income, profitability, liquidity, solvency, and size. Rather than acting as a safety net for Iowa farmers, ARC-CO payments can be more accurately characterized as decoupled support.
