“You’re talking about farmers getting anywhere from 25% to 33% of their income from products being sold overseas,” said USDA Global Analysis and Policy Division Deputy Director Daniel Whitley in an interview with Randall Weiseman of Southeast AgNet after his presentation at the SPGC. “These times are prosperous and we’re expecting them to continue over the long term.”
