The Agricultural Adjustment Act was an act put in place in an attempt to raise the price of crops. It was enacted in 1933. The government paid farmers to not grow certain crops or have certain types of livestock. In doing this, there was less supply thus raising the prices of crops and livestock. The AAA was one of the first major pieces of legislation enacted by President Roosevelt. Farmers benefited from this act while some people who were starving could not find a bright side to it.  

In 1937 the Agricultural Adjustment act was repealed due to the Supreme Court ruling it as unconstitutional. A few changes were made to the AAA and it was soon put back in place. For the next seventy years of the 20th century, the AAA was the basis of all farm programs. Hope was revived in farm communities. Farmers were making more money due to the Act. New tools made it easier to grow more crops on less land. This was one of the few controversies that took place with the new AAA.
