Despite a looming government shutdown amid talks to secure another continuing resolution, as well as upcoming elections, Congress needs to make sure it passes a farm bill this year, says the leader of the nation’s largest farm organization.

If the 2018 farm bill is extended again, American Farm Bureau Federation President Zippy Duvall Duvall says it could be “detrimental to agriculture.”

“We all know that the cost of us producing food and keeping the food system for our country here has escalated tremendously,” Duvall said on this week’s Agri-Pulse Newsmakers.
