Farm Progress America, September 8, 2020

Max Armstrong offers insight into government payments for 2020, which have risen

Max Armstrong observes that farm program payments have become important and USDA is forecasting those to rise to $37 billion, a 65% increase over 2019. Much of that is due to supplemental and ad hoc assistance due to COVID-19 and a weak ag economy. And there are details of a second round of the support.

Farm Progress America is a daily look at key issues in agriculture. It is produced and presented by Max Armstrong, veteran farm broadcaster and host of This Week in Agribusiness.
