The Market Outlook under the New Farm Bill

by Bobby Coats - January 24, 2019

Final approval of the 2018 farm bill removed one source of uncertainty for the farm sector, but trade issues and “normal” supply and demand uncertainties remain. Westhoff summarized important features of the new farm bill for crop producers and discussed what is known and not known about the market outlook.
