National Association of Wheat Growers Reiterates Farmers Need of Timely Farm Bill Reauthorization

Fri, 18 May 2018 14:28:05 CDT

National Association of Wheat Growers Reiterates Farmers Need of Timely Farm Bill Reauthorization Today, H.R. 2 Agriculture and Nutrition Act of 2018, or the 2018 Farm Bill, failed to garner the needed votes to pass out of the Hous. NAWG President and Sentinel, Oklahoma farmer Jimmie Musick made the following statement:


“NAWG is disappointed that the Farm Bill reauthorization process has stalled. Between low commodity prices, a suffering ag economy, extreme weather conditions, and disease, growers need access to a strong Farm Bill after September 30th.   


“Congress needs to enact a Farm Bill before the current one expires to give farmers long-term certainty that a safety net will be available through these uncertain and difficult economic conditions.”
