There’s a lot of action to watch in Washington right now.
Progress on two trade fronts topped the headlines for the news that could impact agriculture, but there’s also the ongoing implementation of the 2018 Farm Bill as well.
Hunter Carpenter, Director of Public Policy at ARA, was recently on the AgPro podcast to recap what the Phase One trade agreement with China means for ag.
ARA Chairman Rod Wells from Growmark was at President Trump’s signing ceremony.
