The policy making process can be very complicated because there is no set point of entry or resolution. There is no step-by-step procedure used when creating a policy so it can be very hard to agree on a plan of action. If a proposal was set forth to shift United States agricultural subsidies from production support to conservation support, I think it would be difficult to get it passed. There are many different people involved in making policies and I feel that it would be hard to get everyone to agree on this proposal. I think that the idea of subsidies for conservation support is good but I feel that this would be too hard to implement. First, I feel that it would be hard to determine what agricultural practices would be considered scientifically sustainable. A practice that may be sustainable in the dry climates of the west may not be sustainable in the humid climate of the east coast. I feel that there would just be too many gray areas involved in determining what a sustainable practice is and exactly how sustainable it is. Just because an agricultural practice is “scientifically sustainable” on paper does not mean that it will necessarily end up being sustainable in all conditions and for all types of farms.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
