Farmweek

'President's Plan' As trade tensions continue, more details on the President's plan to help farmers. Is it a bailout? Meanwhile, the pressure mounts to end the tariffs altogether. Weather is another issue - heat and fire scorch the earth even while pounding rain leads to widespread flooding in parts of the country. And who steps in to help when long-time farm owners retire? One family says goodbye, city - hello, farm life.
