TEXAS FARM RELIEF:  Next week, Texas farmers will be able to apply for nearly 5-billion-dollars in aid to offset losses from an ongoing trade war with China.  China targeted crops such as corn, cotton, and soybeans with tariffs, after the Trump Administration imposed a 25-percent levy on 34-billion-dollars’ worth of Chinese goods earlier this summer.

Gene Hall is with the Texas Farm Bureau, which represents agricultural producers across the state. He told the Texas Standard the farmers support the aid package.
