Farm Bill Issues

Categories: Farm Bill

David Rogers reported yesterday at Politico that, “Falling corn prices are making themselves felt in House-Senate farm bill talks.”

“December 2013 corn futures fell Monday to a new low of $4.12 per bushel at the Chicago Board of Trade. This caps a summer-long slide aggravated most recently by the Environmental Protection Agency’s plans to lower ethanol targets for 2014. And it’s now very likely that corn will qualify for assistance next year under the new revenue-protection program that is the mainstay of the Senate’s commodity title,” the Politico article said.
