Agriculture Adjustment Administration (AAA)

Who does it Help?

This Administration works to help farmers all across the country. It helps encourage more diversified farming. This will also help the average citizen by making them more aware of other farm products.

The Purpose of the Administration

This administration's purpose is to adjust the production of dairy products, wheat, corn, hogs, and rice.

How will we do it?

This will reduce the production of staple crops thus raising the price of farm products and encourage diversified farming.


This program was ruled unconstitutional in 1936. Regulation of agriculture was deemed a state power, but the Agriculture Adjustment Act of 1938 remedied these issues. People felt that it wasn't right for the government to be giving money to farmers to produce a certain crop.
