Max Armstrong observes that farm program payments have become important and USDA is forecasting those to rise to $37 billion, a 65% increase over 2019. Much of that is due to supplemental and ad hoc assistance due to COVID-19 and a weak ag economy. And there are details of a second round of the support.
