How did the 1980’s recession affect United States farmers?

Since the population was rising, the demand for American farm products was high and family farms prospered.

The recession did not impact farmers, only those living and working in urban areas.

The demand for farm products increased significantly and many farms expanded.

Demand for farm products decreased while interest rates for loans increased. Many farmers were unable to pay their loans, forcing them to leave or sell their farm. : My answer
