Entering unchartered territory in trade (dis)agreements

From early frost to widespread drought, farmer Cherilyn Nagel’s crop potential is far from “hitting it out of the park,” and beyond that, she has further external stress.

“Everything that we grow is destined for an export market,” says Nagel. “And that’s always been the case, there’s nothing new about that, but now more than ever in my farming career, those trade agreements are up in the air.”

RealAgriculture’s Shaun Haney caught up with Nagel this week at Canada’s Farm Progress Show in Regina, SK. The duo speak on the aforementioned trade woes (India and pulses; Italy and durum; and China and canola), international political drama; CPTPP and USMCA; and marketing intentions for 2019 crop.
