 2018 Farm Bill Signed into Law

 WASHINGTON, DC —The Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018 was signed into law today by President Trump at a ceremony in Washington, D.C. National Sorghum Producers Chairman Dan Atkisson, a sorghum farmer from Stockton, Kansas, attended the event and released the following statement:

“Today’s signing is a culmination of hard work, commitment and intelligent planning by Congress to get the bill across the finish line before the end of the year. We know this bill invests in the future of agriculture and NSP would like to thank the Administration as well as the leaders of the House and Senate Agriculture Committees and their staffs for their leadership.

“NSP has been engaged in the farm bill process since hearings began in 2017. We have witnessed both chambers make focused efforts to meet the needs of rural America and applaud the resulting legislation. The 2018 Farm Bill contains policy that will maintain and enhance opportunities for sorghum producers and all of U.S. agriculture and we look forward to working with the Administration through its implementation.”

A full analysis of the farm bill’s impacts on sorghum will be in the winter issue of Sorghum Grower magazine released in January and online at sorghumgrowers.com.
