Extra-Long Staple Cotton Act of 1983

The Extra-Long Staple Cotton Act of 1983 (P.L. 98-88) eliminated marketing quotas and allotments for extra-long staple cotton and tied its support to upland cotton through a formula that set the nonrecourse loan rate at not less than 150% of the upland cotton loan level. The act amended the Agricultural Act of 1949 to set forth new Extra-Long Staple cotton program provisions[1] and Agriculture and Food Act of 1981 to add Extra-Long Staple cotton to the $50,000 payment limitation for the payments which a person received under commodity programs.[1] The act was sponsored by Kika de la Garza.
