Net farm income in the United States dropped 23 percent between early 1951 and 1955. This decline in farm income ended during the latter part of 1956. When figured for the year as a whole, 1956 farm income turned out to be about 4 percent greater than in 1955- mainly because of soil bank and wool incentive payments, however.
