Farm Bill Cuba provision could mean big business for ArkLaTex farmers

Local News

The recently passed Farm Bill contained a change in Cuba policy that could open the door for farmers in rice and chicken producing states like Arkansas, Louisiana and Mississippi. 

The change will allow farmers to use government subsidies to advertise their products inside Cuba. 

It represents the first change to the Cuba trade embargo in nearly 20 years. 

Washington D.C. correspondent drew Petrimoulx reports supporters hope it paves the way for additional trade normalization that could provide new opportunities for farmers to sell their products.
