This chart shows what percentage of total subsidy payments was applied to specific product categories between April 1, 2017 and June 30, 2017. Because non-prescription drugs and country foods shipped from northern plants received less than 1% of the subsidy payments, these categories are not shown in the chart. The chart is based on data in the table above.
