The uncertainty in trade policy between China and the U.S. has created concern among the agricultural community about lengthening the period of stagnant farm income. Georgia agriculture produces many of the items on the Chinese tariff list, including nuts, fruits, soybean, corn, wheat, sorghum, cotton, pork, beef, and tobacco. The proposed Chinese retaliatory trade tariff on U.S. products would have a negative impact on Georgia's agriculture and economy.
