ABSTRACT
The article discusses Southern farmers' criticism of the U.S. Senate Agriculture Committee's draft farm bill which was released on March 20, 2012. Concerns that the bill will not provide the kind of safety net that farmers in Arkansas, Louisiana and Mississippi feel they need to stay in business are addressed. The bill's creation of Agriculture Risk Coverage Eligible Acres (ARC) also raises concerns about the protection of rice and irrigated crops in Southern states.
