Missouri farmers: What would agriculture budget cuts mean to you?
Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens has proposed a budget that would cut the state's Agriculture Department of Agriculture by more than two-thirds beginning in the fiscal year that begins July 1. The cuts would be seen largely in reduced payments for the production of biodiesel fuel, which is generally made from corn.
The state House and Senate have until May 5 to deliver a budget to Greitens for approval, rejection or trims. If you're a farmer and would likely be affected by these cuts, St. Louis Public Radio would like to share your story. Please respond to the questions below to join the conversation.
