ERS releases the Farm Program Atlas

A screenshot showing the Farm Program Atlas available at the ERS' website.

ERS' new Farm Program Atlas is an interactive mapping tool that shows farm program data by county. The Atlas assembles data for seven key Federal farm programs: the Direct and Countercyclical Program (DCP), the Average Crop Revenue Election (ACRE) Program, the Marketing Assistance Loan Program, the Supplemental Revenue Assistance (SURE) Program, the Milk Income Loss Contract (MILC) Program, the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP), and the Crop Insurance Program. The Atlas allows users to explore these programs through multiple maps displaying data by county; by total program or by selected program commodity for certain programs; or as a share of all programs. The Farm Program Atlas may be found on the ERS website, updated December 15. 2011.
