August 7, 2019

Chad Hart, associate professor, was quoted in an August 6th New York Times article "Union: Mulvaney Comments Confirm Agency Moves Meant to Cut."

Dr. Chad HartChad Hart, an economics professor and crop-markets specialist at Iowa State University, said he worries about the loss of institutional knowledge. He said the agencies being moved don't tend to interact with individual farmers so, "it doesn't matter if they are 10 miles or 1,000 miles from farmers."

"You're losing that expertise you can't just buy back," he said.
