Max Armstrong offers insight into one provision of the new farm bill that could boost trade to Cuba

Max Armstrong looks at a key market that’s close, but not open – Cuba. The new farm bill may open the door to more trade to that island nation. The new Cuba provision allows USDA to use market funding and advertise products. The farm bill means Cuba will no longer be treated differently from other markets – and it can open more trade.

Farm Progress America is a daily look at key issues in agriculture. It is produced and presented by Max Armstrong, veteran farm broadcaster and host of This Week in Agribusiness.
