There are so many ways that price and trade policies have influenced western agriculture that it is difficult to make an enumeration, not to mention any kind of analysis of each policy. On the product side, price support programs have had large impact in the production of many crops; wheat, corn, cotton, dairy products, sugar beets, potatoes, and wool as well as many others. Trade policy has greatly affected the profability of wool and sugar beet production.
