The window of opportunity for passing a farm bill this year is very small and closing fast.

Talking to people with boots on the ground in American agriculture, optimism that the legislation gets written is hard to find.

Asked if she had hope that it might get done this year, South Dakota Corn Executive Director DaNita Murray responded a simple “no.”

“I don’t have a ton of hope, but that said, there is still a possibility of getting it done if there is a breakthrough in funding challenges,” she said.

It’s been hard to get either side in Washington, D.C., to agree on getting either new money into the current bill or moving money around to help fund the bill.
