Perdue Expects More Farm Aid Payouts, Despite Chinese Soy Purchase
USAgNet - 12/17/2018
U.S. Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue said he expects the White House to approve a second tranche of aid payments to farmers hurt by ongoing trade disputes, despite new Chinese purchases of soybeans.
According to Reuters, Perdue met with the White House Office of Management and Budget on the issue on Friday.
He added that he hoped China would continue buying U.S. soybeans after the recent purchases, but said he had no knowledge of new agreements for China to do so.
