THEY SAID IT!
U.S. Senate Agricultural Chairman Roberts Warns Of Tariff Impact On Kansas Farmer

U.S. Senate Committee On Agriculture, Nutrition & Forestry Chairman Pat Roberts: “And Putting Agriculture Commodities In A Retaliation Bullseye, That Is An Ongoing And Very Critical Challenge For Everybody In Farm Country.” (U.S. Senate Committee On Finance, Hearing, 6/20/18)

  • ROBERTS: “First, I Want To Let You Know Our Wheat Harvest Has Just Started. The Expected Total Would Be The Lowest In 40 Years.  We Are In A Rough Patch.” (Senate Committee On Finance, Hearing, 6/20/18)
  • ROBERTS: “Yesterday, The Closing Price In Dodge City – Here’s The Farm Report – For Wheat Was Down About 70 Cents Per Bushel, Corn Down About Three Cents, Sorghum Down About Four Cents.” (U.S. Senate Committee On Finance, Hearing, 6/20/18)
  • ROBERTS: “We Usually Have Our Wheat Exported To Mexico. When I Talk About We, The Wheat Producers In Kansas – We Have Wheat On The Ground From Last Year’s Crop.  This Year’s Crop, As I Said, Was The Lowest In 40 Years.  Mexico’s Buying Their Wheat From Argentina And Their Corn From Brazil, That’s The Problem.  We Could Be In A Situation [Where] We Would Lose That Market, And We Wouldn’t Be A Reliable Supplier.  Once You Do That, You’re In A Lot Of Trouble In The Trade Business.” (U.S. Senate Committee On Finance, Hearing, 6/20/18)
