Representative Crawford: Chinese Are ‘Dishonest Brokers’

Farming has been a perilous business in recent years due to harsh weather conditions and continuing trade wars with other countries, especially China. U.S. Rep. Rick Crawford, R-Jonesboro, told members of the Agriculture Council of Arkansas on Monday in Jonesboro that he’s hopeful lawmakers will be able to develop supplemental help for farmers, but he warned them not to count on it.

He also added that he’s still not convinced that U.S. rice will be sold in China, even though several key restrictions were removed almost two years ago.        MORE
