The Agricultural Adjustment Act was a Federal Law instituted by the United States Government that aimed at increasing the value of crops and livestock. Farmers would be paid subsidies in return to not plant their own crops and to remove extra crops after harvest. This was the same for Farmers with cattle or other types of livestock, if their were any extra cattle at the end of the harvest seasons, they would have to get rid of them. This all added up to a dependance for crops and meat that only farmers could supply. It also got rid of the surplus of extra crops which ensured that if consumers wanted extra crops or any goods that farmers could supply they would have to either pay more or wait for the next season. The AAA also instituted a new department called the Agricultural Adjustment Administration, these departments looked over and managed the regulations that the AAA put forth, they would be in charge of giving farmers the subsides and checks and regulating the laws that the new act puts forth. The Agricultural Adjustment Administration took charge of overseeing the farmers crops during harvest and could hire out people to inspect the land to ensure that the farmers were not growing excess crops or keeping any livestock for themselves.
