How does the government know which crops to subsidize?

    The government decides which crops to subsidize based on economic interests.  The crops that get subsidized the most like corn, wheat, rice, and cotton, have high yields and demand.  They can be bought and used for many things including livestock feed, corn syrup, biofuel, and just about every processed food.  Many food manufacturers and fast food businesses like Coke, Dunkin’ Donuts, KFC, etc., rely on the low prices of subsidized crops because they make it possible for companies to sell their products, which are made from these crops, at low prices as well.   It’s in the interest then of many businesses (and the politicians they support) to subsidize specific crops.
