Based on its analysis of USDA records, the environmental group said that “many recipients live not in farm country but in the nation’s 50 largest cities or in other decidedly non-rural locations.”According to the EWG, “Recipients include 70 residents of San Francisco, 65 residents of New York City, 63 residents of Los Angeles, 61 residents of Washington, and 19 residents of Miami.” Among the Washington recipients was a sugar lobbyist with a farm in Iowa.

Farmland values are falling for the fifth year in the Midwest, and one factor in the decline is “muted expectations for farm income” this year, said the Chicago Federal Reserve Bank on Thursday. “The profitability of many corn and soybean farms will almost surely fall from their 2018 levels — possibly by a lot for some,” said the bank’s quarterly AgLetter, because market prices are unlikely to rise enough to offset the expected lower yields from late-planted crops. Like regional Feds in Kansas City, Minneapolis, and St. Louis, the Chicago Fed said farm bankers in its district reported that the rainiest spring in a quarter-century, accompanied by flooding in some areas, affected a large portion of their borrowers. Some 24 percent of borrower.

China intends “to buy a lot of farm product,” said on Tuesday, describing “a very, very productive call” between U.S. and Chinese trade negotiators. At the same time, the White House announced it would delay 10 percent tariffs on electronics such as cell phones, laptop computers, and video game consoles until December 15. “Again, they’ve said this many times; they’ve said they’re going to buy farm products,” Trump told reporters in New Jersey. “So far, they’ve disappointed me…They haven’t been truthful, or, let’s say, they’ve certainly delayed the decision. But it’s their intention to buy a lot of farm product.”The administration repeatedly called during July for China to make good will purchases of US farm exports. China said no firm comm.

The world market for soybeans nearly doubled in a 10-year span, growing at an average 7.5 million tonnes a year through 2018, say USDA analysts in the monthly report. But the go-go days of growth may be over, due to retrenchment in China, the dominant buyer. Soybean exports are forecast at 149 million tonnes during the 2019/20 trade year, little changed from the current year and down nearly 3 percent from 2017/18. For China, the drop is more severe – 10 percent – from the figure recorded before the Sino-US trade war began in earnest in 2018. Besides the effects of the trade war, China has lost millions of pigs in a hog-disease epidemic, reducing the need for soybeans, used in livestock feed. “If not for the increase in demand from other mar.

U.S. farmers will harvest their smallest corn and soybean crops since 2013, but the trade war will constrain exports of America’s two major crops for the second year in a row, forecast the USDA on Monday. Soybeans would sell at the lowest average price at the farm gate in 13 years. The USDA lowered its estimate of corn and soybean exports by 100 million bushels apiece for the marketing year that begins on Sept. 1. U.S. stockpiles will remain ample, equal to an eight-week supply of corn and 10 weeks of soybeans at the end of the 2019/20 trade year. The lower soy forecast reflects “reduced global import demand, mainly for China,” said the USDA. U.S. corn exports face increasing competition from Brazil and Argentina, beneficiaries of the trade.

DES MOINES, Iowa -- The U.S. Midwest weather is shaping up to be on the droughty side, despite buckets of spring rains. For the past two weeks, a wide section from central Iowa to central Indiana has been dry, entering these areas into the beginning stages of a drought. And, not much relief from the drought status is in sight, for the next few days, according to Rob Miller, AccuWeather meteorologist. “A high pressure weather pattern will keep most of the precipitation to the west,” Miller says. Some short-term relief could arrive mid next week, with a storm system moving through the state’s impacted by drought conditions, he says. “Some beneficial rains will show up Monday and Tuesday, but not enough to completely overcome the drought,” Mill.
