TITLE:  The WTO and Its Potential Impacts on U.S. Agricultural Policy

ABSTRACT: Much has been made of the potential impacts of the WTO and the Doha Work Program on domestic agricultural support. In the United States, the current WTO negotiating round, coupled with uncertainty surrounding the challenge to the U.S. cotton program brought by Brazil,
has the potential to impact U.S. domestic agricultural policy. These program crops, grains, oilseeds, and cotton, are vitally important to Southern agriculture. The current status of the negotiations and their potential impacts on U.S. farm policy will be presented in this symposium. Implications for
applied research and extension education will be highlighted, examined, and discussed.
