On August 27, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) released details of the $12 billion package of aid to farmers hurt by retaliation resulting from the U.S. tariffs on Chinese goods. Wheat will receive 14¢/bushel.

In its release, NAWG stated that while “it appreciates the administration’s steps to hold China accountable for unfair trade practices but tariffs and the subsequent self-inflicted need to provide aid aren’t the answer. Farmers across the country want ‘trade, not aid,' especially wheat growers.”

U.S. Wheat Associates issued a similar statement which also comments on how the federal aid package invests in market development programs.
