Minnesota Report

Because of the tariffs imposed on China by Donald J Trump (R), Minnesota needs to change is Agricultural mix. The mono-cultural growing of corn and beans (soybeans) will not be as productive since China was the largest consumer of soybeans and because Minnesota is the number three producer, and now other nations are growing beans. Russian and Brazil have stepped into fill the void and now the world market is not as dependent on United States crops.

Minnesota needs to more dynamic and start producing alternative crops that have both a domestic interest as well as a global one. Crops like hemp are consumable and will enhance the dietary market, although the implement dealer will need to refit or produce machinery to handle the task.
