The USDAżs Farm Service Agency (FSA) provides programs to help farmers recover financially from natural disasters. Congress has historically supplemented these programs with ad hoc programs that pay farmers who experienced crop losses. To receive these payments, farmers must purchase coverage under federal crop insurance or the Noninsured Crop Disaster Assistance Program, and receive claims payments for losses. This report evaluated: (1) how FSA administered the crop disaster programs for losses from 2001 through 2007 and the results of payments under these programs; and (2) what lessons FSA

Using crop revenue as the basis for agricultural payments has long been proposed as a way to reform U.S. farm programs. Revenue is more closely related to farm income than either prices or yields individually. The ACRE program uses a combination of State- and farm-level revenue guarantees that are determined from recent historic prices and yields. This report examines and simulates crop revenue variability for producers of four crops ż corn, soybeans, wheat, and cotton ż and estimates potential ACRE payments from a broad range of possible revenue outcomes. It analyzes how ACRE payments and t
