Ag groups ask Biden to lift fertilizer tariffs

The fight to lift tariffs on fertilizer products has been taken to the White House.

Iowa Farm Bureau president Brent Johnson says he and other leaders with American Farm Bureau, the National Corn Growers Association, and American Soybean Association were recently in Washington to deliver a letter to President Biden asking him to remove tariffs on imports of phosphate and nitrogen fertilizers.

“That’ll go a significant way to level the playing field in dealing with some of those antitrust issues.”

He tells Brownfield the President removed tariffs on solar panels in the name of national security.
