The farmers were equally hampered by bad crops, which only fueled the uncertainty surrounding the international market, which caused further discontent for the farmers as they became increasingly frustrated by the government's refusal to intervene as the United States became progressively more urbanized and industrialized. In response to this, the farmers began to organize themselves into regional groups and merged together in joint venture agreements in an attempt to minimize the effects of the recession. It inspired the establishment of the regional Famers' Alliances which aimed to represent the people and put pressure on the already existing political parties to enact agrarian reform. What is the strong argument for farmers association in America? A) It is an outcome of collective representation B) Any civil war condition would kindle such groups C) It is to pressurize the government to focus on them D) The urban market condition pushes them organize
