Largest USA government buy of apples and apple products to date - $100 Million.

Imagine 80% of your income is sitting on the #trees and the processor tells you they don't want them, #exports have declined 21% over the past decade, a symptom of retaliatory tariffs from #India that only ended this fall. Hail also left a significant share of #apples cosmetically unsuitable for the fresh market. #Farmers would normally recoup some value by selling to processors, but that wasn't an option for many either – processors still had leftovers from last year sitting in climate-controlled storage.
