Farm bill a focus for MO soybean growers

Missouri Soybean President and central Missouri farmer Matt Wright says the state’s soybean growers want to see adjustments in the farm safety net and continue crop insurance investments for the farm bill.

“Crops change and the weather changes so crop insurance is always a moving target.”

American Soybean Association Executive Committee member and West-central Missouri farmer Ronnie Russell says farm bill funding is a challenge again this year. Russell says he is concerned there will be less money for three of the four policy areas in the farm bill, which is why ASA is asking for additional funding for the entire legislation. Brownfield interviewed Wright and Russell during the Missouri Soybean Association’s annual meeting earlier this week.
