Agricultural Adjustment Act
May of 1933 provides producers of certain agricultural products at a guaranteed price i.e. wheat, cotton, corn, rice, tobacco, hogs. Sets production limits and set subsidies for farmers leaving some of there land un farmed. This is done by placing a tax on certain food products. This doesn't work because people can't buy the products in the first place. The problem is the landowner gets the money not the sharecropper or land leaser. Another problem is the government would say we will pay you not to farm 10 acres and this would cause the eviction of sharecroppers etc.
