If fruit and nut prices don't rebound lots of farmers might start having second opinions on Trump.

Low prices aren't as catastrophic in Arkansas as they are here in California, where nut trees are artificially watered. Maybe Californian farmers will stop growing nuts in the desert out here. Then Arkansas will survive just fine and can continue growing nuts in their native environment. Then, with all the water saved maybe I'll be allowed to flush my toilet again. Thank you Trump!

One of the problems with growing nut trees in the desert is, if we have a drought year in California, farmers can't just decide to not not water and not have a crop that year — the trees take years to mature. So even though nut trees might be "water efficient," nut trees are worse than annual crop plants because you can't adjust from year to year.

What about fruit trees?

What if you hold reparian water rights?

Yes, several countries have imposed new tariffs because of Trump's actions, China and India being the largest. In fact India almost put a 100% tariff on a certain nut but backed It down to 20%.

Well, both already had big fat tariffs on us, so it's not like they were openly free trading with us to begin with.

If we gave 25-30 of "Free Trade" (one-sided) to work, we can give 5 years of responsive high tariffs to work.

The failure farmers love Trump handing them tax dollars.
Fuck any Socialist Republican that accepts one cent in tax dollars or subsidies.
Why can't they take responsibility?
In my Independent business,I made more than many & a much,much less than the few but nobody gave me orders or had to carry me. You can only plant so many acres of a particular crop.

Rep/Cons come on back when you want your asses kicked.

Fuck all of us to tears,we're all a bunch of hypocrites,with the exception of patnetters.

It's impossible for anyone to have more fun.

Historical evidence shows that decreasing global temperatures lead to wetter west coast states and drier midwestern states. When the temperatures rise again, the Southwest dries out again and the Oklahoma Kansas Missouri belt grows lush.

Is this evidence of global cooling then?

On the whole, fruit trees have the same problem as nut trees (can't adjust year to year) but fruit trees also don't yield much profit per gallon of water used.

Tariffs on metals will cost U.S. agriculture billions

Purdue economists said the trade deal with Canada and Mexico would increase food exports to those countries by about $454 million annually. But if the U.S. tariffs on steel and aluminum remain in place, exports to those countries will decrease by $1.8 billion

"In terms of exports, it is relatively sizable when compared to the relative benefits we would get from the new trade deal," said Maksym Chepeliev, a research economist at Purdue, who was one of the authors of the study released Wednesday.

In the face of those losses, dozens of national agricultural groups joined together to ask the Trump administration to lift the tariffs on steel and aluminum.

"For many farmers, ranchers and manufacturers, the damage from the reciprocal trade actions in the steel dispute far outweighs any benefit that may accrue for them from USMCA," the groups wrote Wednesday in a letter to the Department of Commerce and the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative.

The letter was signed by representatives from 46 groups, including the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the National Corn Growers Association and the National Pork Producers Council.

The Trump administration levied a 25 percent tariff on steel and a 10 percent tariff on aluminum from Canada and Mexico on June 1. Canada and Mexico responded with a tariffs on U.S. products, including pork and corn.
