The article reports that the delegates of American Farm Bureau Federation have extended their support to postpone the current farm bill. The delegates want to extend the provisions of the 2002 farm bill until an international agreement is formulated. The delegates said in the AFBF's annual meeting that they do not want to change U.S. farm programs until the current Doha Round of World Trade Organization negotiations is completed. They said that such an agreement ensures greater market access to U.S. farm products.
