Production Flexibility Contract (PFC) acres enrolled for fiscal year (FY) 1996 were released by USDA on August 19, 1996. From these data, and what we know about the payment stream, we calculated the payment rates by bushel, acre, and state. Total payments by state under the 1996 FALR Act were also calculated. These figures provide a comparison by state and commodity.
