Bargaining power has long been a popular subject among farmers and farm organizations. Its popularity undoubtedly reflects farmers 1 continuing concern with their economic position relative to other sectors of the economy. Bargaining power is accepted as an important policy objective by major farm organizations who otherwise agree on few farm program proposals.
