As we all know, prices of agricultural commodities during this war have been directly and substantially affected by Government controls and will probably continue to be so affected in the immediate future. These controls take two forms: First, there are those relating to price floors, that is, minimum support prices with respect to agricultural commodities; and, second, there are those relating to price ceilings, that is, maximum prices with respect to agricultural commodities.
