French: Farmer Concerns Over Weather, the Farm Bill, and Trade

Reno County farmer Jim French says his wheat crop turned out a little better than expected, and most Fall crops are holding their own due to recent rains.  Unfortunately, that’s not the case in many areas of the state with pastures drying up, shortages of stock water, and Fall crops that are hurting due to heat and dry weather.  French says it is imperative Congress pass the new Farm Bill as soon as possible, and that current trade disputes are worked out.  He said farmers desperately need certainty.
