Storyline


The trade talks between China and the United States are set to resume in Washington on Thursday. There are media reports suggesting China may seek a partial deal that would include increased purchases of U.S. agricultural products. If that were to happen, it could provide relief for U.S. farmers.

For many farmers across the United States, this growing season has presented a range of challenges. Unfavorable weather conditions across huge areas of the country meant some fields are not yet ready to be harvested. Yield projections for both corn and soybeans are down from last year.

The U.S. state of Illinois has been badly hit by the dispute. More soybeans are produced there than in any other U.S. state.

As Illinois farmer Steve Fourez harvests this year's crop of soybeans and corn, he is deeply concerned.

"This has kind of been a high stress year. It's one thing to deal with Mother Nature and the hand she's dealt us this year, but when you put the depressed markets down on top of that, it gets hard for people to see the light at the end of the tunnel," said Fourez.

The trade dispute between the United States and China has seen increasing tariffs imposed on billions of dollars of one another's goods since early 2018.

As a result, exports of soybeans to China fell to 3.1 billion U.S. dollars last year, down from 12.2 billion in 2017.

But there are signs of hope. Chinese importers purchased around 600,000 tons of U.S. soybeans last month.

Fourez says it's time to make a deal. "It's one of those things where it's dragged on long enough. We need to get some kind of resolution, some kind of direction so we can kind of plan."

That view is echoed by another Illinois farmer, Brandon Daugherty.

"We've had decent markets until the last couple of years, and last couple of years ever since the trade tariffs have taken their toll. I would love to see those tariffs go by the wayside, China, US get together, get this behind us, and get the exports flowing again," said Daugherty.

Although it's a busy time for farmers the worry and anxiety remain.
