USDA says details on new farmer aid plan coming soon

WASHINGTON, May 21 (Reuters) - The details of a new Trump administration’s aid package for farmers hurt by the U.S.-China trade war will be forthcoming shortly, a Department of Agriculture spokeswoman said on Tuesday, and added that the aid was designed to avoid skewing planting decisions.

“Farmers should continue to make their planting and production decisions with the current market signals in mind, rather than some expectation of what a trade mitigation program might or might not look like, based on a media story,” the spokeswoman said, referring to a Bloomberg report.
