Description

Farmers rarely face penalties for failing to live up to their soil conservation plans. If they don't follow the plans that they develop with the Natural Resources Conservation Service, they are supposed to lose federal farm subsidies. Loopholes in the 1996 Freedom to Farm legislation makes it easy for farmers to avoid the penalties.
