USDA Explains Trade Aid Math

When USDA recently announced how much farmers would receive in “trade aid” payments, there was some controversy.

USDA has been asked to defend its math, and yesterday put out information to explain how the calculations on payments were made. To get those details, go here: https://www.usda.gov/media/press-releases/2018/09/13/usda-details-trade-damage-estimate-calculations
