Size matters. Big U.S. farms get even bigger amid China trade war

As the 2018 harvest approached, North Dakota farmer Mike Appert had a problem - too many soybeans and nowhere to put them. Selling was a bad option.

Temporary storage would only buy him a little bit of time, particularly in an area where cold weather can damage crops stored in plastic bags.
