Trade Disputes, Trade Relief and the Farm Bill

by Bobby Coats - August 2, 2018

As Congress considers a new farm bill, trade disputes have had a negative impact on prices for soybeans and other agricultural commodities and the Administration has announced plans to provide additional federal support to the farm sector. As of 08/02/18 Westhoff brought perspective to this quickly-changing situation and discussed possible implications for agricultural markets and farm program payments.
