Farmer frustration grows with trade war and ag economy
he trade war between the United States and China continues to escalate and as it does there’s growing frustration among farmers in the country. The battle has lasted far longer than expected and recently rose to a new level. President Donald Trump announced the U.S. will be imposing another 10% tariff on $300 billion of Chinese goods on Sept. 1, due in part to the lack of ag purchases made by the Chinese. The president will now delay those tariffs until Dec. 15.
