Iowa Congresswoman hearing farmer concerns as input costs continue to rise
A member of Congress says the high cost of fertilizer is the biggest concern for farmers in her district.
Cindy Axne is a Democrat from Iowa and serves on the House Agriculture Committee.
“That sharp increase could really strap them from getting a return.”
She tells Brownfield some farmers are considering planting fewer acres this year.
“So my job is to help see what we can do to address that.”
Axne and 85 other U.S. representatives and senators have written the International Trade Commission asking that duties on imported Moroccan phosphate fertilizer be reconsidered.
