And in Ohio…Contemplating 25% Tariffs on Soybeans

Summary:
From Brown, Sheldon,AEDE Agricultural Report 2018-001, May 2018: Through calculations made based on a representative west central Ohio farm, and assuming an average degree of Chinese substitution between U.S. and Brazilian soybean import, it is estimated that average net income per year (2018-2024) would drop from ,577 to ,107 under the proposed tariff, which translates to a 59% decrease in net farm income. The US tariffs on steel and Chinese retaliation induces this effect through “higher machinery costs, lower corn, soybean and pork prices for U.S. agricultural producers”.
