Prices Down. Positive Outlooks.

Show Date:

U.S. agriculture’s financial health is dependent on exports. As a country, we export 50% of major crops, 70% of fruit and 25% of pork. In late May, the United States and China began a trade war after President Trump’s administration placed a tariff on steel, aluminum and other commodities. China fired back by adding a tariff on U.S. agricultural products, causing a drop in prices for soybeans, corn, pork and other exports.
