Welfare in the majority of rural communities is closely associated with farm income. The level of farm income in typical rural areas is the dominant force in determining the volume of business, the demand for services and the employment base of towns. This study is directed toward improvement of economic opportunities in rural communities as affected by farm income. It deals with the conditions under which farmer bargaining power can increase farm income.
