What is the plural of "anecdotes*"?...

Data.  (Ba-dum-bump).  At any rate, I have now had three conversations with farmers who are leaving the program because they object to the income verification forms.  One because explaining it to myriad disinterested share-crop farmowners presented a formidable task, another because it just became too frustrating for his large operation, and so on.

All of my farms are straight cash rent (save one), so I skipped that part, but I have also heard producers are reluctantly moving to vanilla cash rents to solve the problem.

Is this a peculiarity of my part of the world?
