Farm Progress America, June 22, 2022

Max Armstrong reports on discussions about the Farm Safety Net and ad hoc disaster assistance.

Max Armstrong visits the concepts of the Farm Safety Net and what it should look like in the new farm bill. Max shares that several hearings around the country offer farmers the opportunity to have input into the conversation. The existing Farm Safety Net includes commodity programs and crop insurance, which protects against production losses. The idea was to move away from ad hoc disaster assistance, and Max shares further insight.

Max Armstrong's 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.
