National farm program acreage
The number of harvested acres of feed grains, wheat, and cotton needed nationally to meet domestic and export use and to accomplish any desired increase or decrease in carryover levels. The acreage base for an individual farm was calculated as the producer’s share of the national farm program acreage. The FAIR Act of 1996 eliminated the need to calculate a national program acreage.
