This chapter describes the operation of the Third agrarian New Deal during mid-1938 until 1942, when cooperative land-use planning became the central concern of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). The Third agrarian New Deal is a program comprised of grassroots planning organizations which aims to shape agricultural policy from the rural neighborhood to the USDA, with the aid of adult educators, researchers, and planners. The framing of the program under the Mount Weather Agreement and the reorganization of the USDA's Bureau of Agricultural Economics (BAE) propelled the operation of the program. The BAE became the central planning agency that entailed not only the general planning, but also the program-making and the stimulating of the farm people's participation. The chapter also talks about the procedure of the county planning structure, as well as statistical results that proved the widespread reception of the program.
