Last week, the Trump Administration announced that it will roll out a $12 billion aid package to farmers as early as this September. The emergency aid is designed to offset financial losses farmers affected by tariffs are expected to incur as a result of the trade disputes between the U.S. and China. But only 10% of farmers responding to a Farm Journal Pulse survey last week said the relief plan alleviates their financial concerns.
Nearly 670 farmers responded to the question: To what degree does President Trump’s $12 billion relief plan for U.S. farmers relieve your concerns about the impact of tariffs on your farm income? Thirty-seven percent of farmers responded “not at all.” Another 24% said the plan alleviates their concerns only “somewhat,” while 29% percent said they are “not sure.”
