Sugar growers want higher loan rates in next farm bill

The chairman of the American Sugar Alliance says farmers need higher base prices in the next farm bill.

Ryan Weston tells Brownfield input prices are up to 200 percent more than last year and farm policy needs to reflect growing costs.

“If you don’t have slightly higher market prices right now, you are not making money, and, that for the long term for food security of the United States is very important,” he says.
