Arkansas Senator John Boozman, a senior Republican member of the Senate Agriculture Committee, joined North Dakota Senator John Hoeven to discuss key issues impacting farm policy and crop insurance at the CIPA Fall Meeting. Boozman said farm bill discussions will begin for the committee in 2021. “The next farm bill will be in 2023, which will be here before we know it. We face many challenges and hopefully, our trade situation will be better and we continue to look for new markets.” The crop insurance program is a big part of the farm bill discussions. “It’s really been worked and used tremendously, because of the circumstances we’ve been in.”
