Max Armstrong digs into the farm bill and how it has evolved to include energy investment.

Max Armstrong shares that the farm bill has come a long way since it was written in 1933. He notes the addition of Title IX - for energy - and how the environment for energy policy has changed since the writing of the 2014 farm bill. Changing energy prices impact other parts of the energy industry.

Farm Progress America is a daily look at key issues in agriculture. It is produced and presented by Max Armstrong, veteran farm broadcaster and host of This Week in Agribusiness.
