The U.S. agricultural economy continues to return prices to farmers, at or below their costs to produce America's corn, soybeans and wheat, and the National Farmers Organization released its recommendations to bolster low-price trends.

"National Farmers believes Congress should review the Farm Bill as soon as possible, because low commodity prices have further fueled the deterioration of rural communities, businesses and infrastructure," said Linda Reineke, national grain director for National Farmers. "Low commodity values have also contributed to declining real equity and financial resources of farm operators."
