He said the cost of the program to taxpayers in the form of government payments to farmers would be reduced and in some cases eliminated becuase strong demand is keeping prices considerably higher than suoport levels, Increase Food Supplies The President acknowledged that the administration hopes to use the bill as part of a campaign to boost food production and increase food supplies.
