    by Larry Lee on May 23, 2019 at 7:38 pm

    A Congressman wants to block the relocation of the Economic Research Service and the National Institute of Food and Agriculture by restricting USDA’s spending. House Appropriations Ag Subcommittee Chair Sanford Bishop of Georgia, a Democrat, has introduced a spending bill that would fund the ERS and NIFA, but only if they remain in Washington D.C.  Ag Secretary Sonny Perdue has proposed moving the agencies and is expected to select a site soon.  The spending bill includes salaries and expenses for several USDA agencies including the Farm Service Agency, Risk Management Agency, Rural Development, and the Agricultural Credit Insurance Fund.  Bishop has been critical of the ERS and NIFA relocation, calling it, “a solution in search of a problem.” Continue reading Congressman moves to block ERS & NIFA move with restrictive spending bill at Brownfield Ag News.     &nbs […]

    by Ken Anderson on May 23, 2019 at 7:14 pm

    North-central Iowa farmer April Hemmes says she feels fortunate to have as much of her crop planted as she does, considering the challenges from Mother Nature. “I finished with corn and got a good start on beans,” Hemmes says. “But the hard part is we haven’t had a day or two days to just go. It’s like you go a day and then you might get rained out the next day.” Hemmes says she has about 100 acres of beans left to plant.
