ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the concerns raised by various agriculture advocacy groups regarding the impact of the proposed 2011 budget by President Barack Obama on the agricultural sector in the U.S. It suggests that Obama's attempt to control government spending would mean payment cuts to farmers and other agriculture-related insurance. It also notes that cotton and grain growers would collect 30,000 dollars or less annually in direct-payment subsidies, a drop of 10,000 dollars.
