The answer is to protect farmers from foreign producers and a federal program for price supports. The basic idea that the bill was an equalization of the rate. The government was the separation of the amounts necessary for domestic consumption of the exportable surplus. The former were to be sold at the higher domestic price (world price plus the tariff), using the full advantage of the tariff rates on agricultural products for export, and the latter at the world price.
