Max Armstrong shares insight from Dan Basse, president, Agresource who has been speaking virtually to groups saying 2021 will be a good year for farmers. And the second half will improve as more people get the COVID-19 vaccine. Max observes that a lot of the higher farm income in 2020 came from direct payments and Basse says it will help farm balance sheets, but Basse doesn't see more of those payments in 2021.
