China has targeted U.S. agriculture in a big way as the nations exchange fire in an escalating trade war, reports Bloomberg. But luckily for American farmers, they seem to have escaped the latest blow.

Most major U.S. crops were already hit by previously announced Chinese duties, so the fresh duties announced Friday on about $60 billion worth of American goods is leaving the farm largely unscathed.
