Description

New agricultural policy is developed and existing policy changed during the 1980s in reaction to the farm crisis. This segment is part of the documentary The Farm Crisis, which examines the tragic circumstances faced by farmers for most of the 1980s, when thousands were forced into bankruptcy, land values dropped by one-third nationally, and sky-high interest rates turned successes into failures seemingly overnight.
