  • Various agricultural industries have been assessing what the damages might be thanks to the Russian ban on agricultural products put into place last week and extending for a year.

    Meat products and things like potatoes will take the brunt of the ban although as one industry official put it, in the grand scheme of things a one-year ban is not really enough to do a lot of overall damage.

    What it is causing ag officials to do is to look elsewhere to expand other markets.

  • Many of the low-income households participating in USDA’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program struggle with time constraints related to work and child care.

    The share of SNAP-participating households with earnings has risen over the past 15 years from 24 percent to 31 percent in fiscal 2012, and single-parent households made up 57 percent of all SNAP households with children in fiscal 2012.

    A recent study found a significant relationship between SNAP participation and time spent preparing and eating meals.
