Leaders of the House and Senate Ag Committees were sent a letter Friday from leading crop organizations asking them to include market-oriented farm policy measures when they enter into conference committee for a final farm bill.

The American Soybean Association (ASA), the National Corn Growers Association (NCGA) and the U.S. Canola Association (USCA) say they would not support any bill that contains a risk-management program tying planted acres to fixed reference or target prices.

It appears conferencing on the farm bill won't take place until September -after Congress returns from its August break.
