Farm financial stress in the United States is a persistent problem that remains to be reckoned with by agricultural policymakers, agricultural lenders, and rural communities. A surge of farm income in 1986 afforded temporary relief to some operators; the long-term projections however, indicate that farm financial stress will continue to affect a sizable segment of the farm population (FAPRI Staff Report 3-86).
