Ag Groups Nervous Over Chinese Tariffs on U.S. Farm Products

 

John Heisdorffer, Iowa farmer and President of the American Soybean Association, and Steve Mercer, Vice-President of Communications with U.S. Wheat Associates, both responded to the growing trade dispute between the U.S. and China.  Soybeans and wheat will both be subject to a 25 percent import tariff.  China is the largest single buyer of American soybeans, and purchased more than $400 million worth of U.S. wheat in 2017.
