Penn State's annual AG Progress Days are underway. It is one of the largest, outdoor agricultural shows on the East Coast, but this year, there's a lot of talk about the business of farming. It was a busy first day for AG Progress Days where once again there's a lot to see and do. But for many farmers, including the state's top farmer, the Secretary of Agriculture , one of the more dominant topics is the global economy. A lot of business is done at AG Progress Days, from large scale farm machinery, to smaller scale gear. But it's talk of tariffs and embargoes overseas that has farmers concerned about the fate of their products. Tuesday, President Trump delayed plans for added tariffs on Chinese tariffs. U.S. Sen. Robert Casey says the White House policy needs consistency. The AG secretary says there are talks with other countries on new trade agreement for Pennsylvania hardwoods AG Progress Days continue through Thursday at the Rock Springs Research Park.
