More than a third of U.S. farm income in 2019 will come from the government

Farm income is forecast to rise about 5% this year and the government's portion of overall farm income will reach 34%, the highest in more than a decade.

More than a third of U.S. farm income in 2019 will come from the U.S. government in the form of the trade-war bailout, crop-insurance payouts and other federal assistance.

While farm income is projected to rise almost 5%, the share of that coming either directly from the government or from government-subsidized crop insurance is way above normal.
