Farmers caught in cross-fire of China-U.S. trade war

The trade war between the U.S. and China is heating up and farmers are caught in the cross-fire.

Following the latest 10 percent U.S. tariff on Chinese imports, China says it will stop buying all U.S. farm products.

APAS president Todd Lewis says Canadian farmers may face lower grain prices because of the trade war.

He says the dispute has already pushed down U.S. soybean prices.

Canadian canola competes with U.S. soybeans on the world market.

The U.S. is providing billions of dollars in farm support and Lewis is calling on Ottawa to improve farm support programs to avoid any major downturn in Canadian farm income.
