Missouri Governor Mike Parson has signed an executive order to ban China and other foreign adversaries from owning farmland in the state within 10 miles of critical military facilities.

Parson says this is a placeholder in case the state legislature can’t agree on updated foreign ag land policies and its as far as executive authority can go under current state law.  

“If I had the authority, we wouldn’t just be talking about banning farmland, but all commercial properties by foreign adversaries regardless of rural or urban.”

He says other proposals on foreign ag land in the state do more harm than good.
