ABSTRACT
The article reports on the effort of Ed Schafer on new farm bill in the U.S. He recounts that the congress did not care much about the farm bill being World Trade Organization (WTO)-compliant, as he cites the Average Crop Revenue Election (ACRE). Schafer's U.S. Department of Agriculture has already had one run-in with congressional leaders over farm bill implementation. The new law bars payments to farms with 10 acres or less of program crops.
