This escalation will affect us not because of the increased tariff on our sales, which have been at a virtual standstill for months, but through time.”He says the longevity of the situation means worsening circumstances for soy growers who still have unsold product from this past season and new crops in the ground this season.Stephens adds that “prospects are narrowing even more now for sales to China, a market that soy growers have valued, nurtured, and respected for many years.”ASA is asking both parties to step up and stop the tariffs and find a resolution that doesn’t target soy growers trapped in the middle.Source: American Soybean Association SHARE Previous articleLooking to the Past to Deal with the Future on the HAT Friday Morning EditionNext articleFederal Court Sends Water Rule Back to EPA Hoosier Ag Todaylast_img read more
