Abstract

When most students (both on the campus and in our extension workshops) are queried as to their perspective of agricultural policy, the typical response focuses on commodity policy—price and income support programs and the institutional and legal structure that has been developed to implement those programs. This perception of agricultural policy may have been realistic for a large portion of the 1950s and 1960s, and even part of the 19708 if policies that impact exports and international trade are added. But the decade of the 1980s should have broadened our perspective of agricultural policy to include many dimensions heretofore considered unimportant to the agricultural sector.
