On June 26th, an American fertilizer company, The Mosaic Company, filed a petition with the U.S. Department of Commerce and the U.S. International Trade Commission (USITC) that could eliminate key competitors providing fertilizer to American farmers. If Mosaic's petition is successful, it will add additional burdens to an already-struggling agriculture sector, increasing costs, diminishing supply and putting U.S. farmers at a disadvantage in international markets.
Meanwhile, farmers are already struggling. In the wake of COVID-19 and numerous trade wars, farmers can’t afford to pay more for such a vital business input. U.S. farm debt is rapidly rising, with a growing wave of bankruptcies as farmers fight to survive a six-year downturn.
Farmers need a steady and accessible supply chain in order to maintain output. Send a message to Congress to help ensure unnecessary duties don’t hurt American farmers.Act now
