A. H. Stroud has recently shown the existence of cubature formulas for planar regions which use ${m^2}$ points and have polynomial precision $2m - 1$. In this paper, the author gives sufficient conditions for the existence of formulaa using fewer than ${m^2}$ points, and having polynomial precision $2m - 1$. An algorithm is given for computing such formulas, and is shown to be useful in a more general setting than given in the theorem. Numerical examples are given, both in terms of previously known and new cubature formulas.
