Farm program to provide protection at lower price levels

This brief review indicates a real need for a complete risk management
plan which includes a detailed marketing plan. The marketing plan should include price risk management provisions through the use of forward contracts and the use of futures and options contracts as forward pricing systems.

Farm Bill *95 negotiation* are underway in a congressional environment of budget reconciliation and reducing costs. As a result, the trend toward disengaging the farm programs will likely continue
This possible disengagement theme was discussed last week, along with the basic position of the American Farm Bureau Federation of supporting a farm program which would improve competitiveness, provide a safety net, be market responsive, provide more flexibility, reduce complexity and protect private property.
While it appears likely that Farm Bill *95 will take into account most of Farm Bureau’s recommendations, it also appears likely that the new bill will continue to disengage the farm program and continue to transfer a greater share of risk management responsibility to management
The farm program will probably continue to maintain “ safety nets" but at a much lower level of protection As a result producers will have to develop dynamic risk management programs Probably the first thing to consider in developing a dynamic risk management program is to assess the protection provided by the farm program.
Farm Program Participation
A brief review of the farm program for cotton, tor example, indicates that the benefits provided by participation may not be as profitable as the income potential from planting full base acres if relatively attractive market prices are expected and program disengagement through increased ARP and normal (non-paid) flex acres occurs Fiigh
profit potential and the flexibility of full planted acres may be more likely with a good marketing program in place
Table I provides an approximate price level for cotton at w hich the current f arm program for cotton becomes less profitable given different requirements for the acreage reduction program (ARP) and the normal (non-paid) flex acreage. It should be noted that the value of export marketing loan payments, otherwise knows as producer option payments (POP), are not taken into account in this table, but would provide inducement for participation at the lower pnce levels as mentioned below.
For example, at the current level of 15 percent normal (non-paid) Hex acres and an ARP level of 15 percent, it would be highly advisable to complete a detailed analysis of the cost/benefit relationship of participation using farm specific estimates of production costs and yield levels if the forecast average national pnce for base grade cotton is likely to equal or exceed $0.60/1b Producers should certify their acreage, but planting full base acreage may provide more profit at this or higher pnce levels.
The table shows that it is highly advisable to participate in the program, even with a high ARP requirement and a high normal (non-paid) flex acre level if expected pnces are low. As the normal (non-paid) flex acres increase, the average national pnce for cotton at which producers would be willing to abandon the farm program decreases This indicates that whereas increasing normal (non-paid) flex acres decreases benefits, the umbrella of protection at the lower pnce levels remains in place regardless of ARP level, espe-
