Agricultural Adjustment Act, 1938
   Replacing the first Agricultural Adjustment Act of 1933 and supplementing the Soil Conservation and Domestic Allotment Act of 1936, the 1938 act established a “granary” principle setting marketing quotas, crop insurance, and parity price payments. This system paid farmers to store surplus commodities produced during good years so that they could be released during lean years. The funds were raised out of general taxation.
