Go Figure: Ohio Farmers Hit With Weather, Tariffs, Make More Money

COLUMBUS, Ohio (News Talk 1480 WHBC) – Early-season flooding rains followed by near-drought conditions.

Still, an Ohio State farm income forecast indicates farmers in the state will see slightly higher incomes compared to last year, on average.

Subsidies for crop damage and unfair tariffs have definitely helped.

Stark County farmers got $48 an acre for the latter, according to the U.S. Agriculture Department.
