New Farm Bill Amendment Creates More Stability 
Feb 19, 2018
I believe the new legislation re-establishing cotton as a title 1 commodity is a real improvement for local agriculture… across the board.  No matter what our view was for the generic base that existed through 2017, it is in the past and will no longer exist.  The amendment just passed on February 9th provides a better safety net for a higher percentage of our acreage based on the way we actually farm.  This is a win not only for Agriculture but for the entire economy in this region which counts on stable agricultural enterprises every year.  We have great land for peanuts and cotton and we have good management and infrastructure for these enterprises.  Now we will have better protection in those down years not only for peanuts but cotton as well.  Initially, we try to look at the whole world of what ‘ifs’ that might seem like a lot of considerations; however, for 90% of the individual farms, it almost like just pressing the easy button for the decision.  Come by the office in Windsor or give us a call to come out to your office and we will be glad to share the options on a farm by farm basis which is how to keep it simple.
