Rick Crawford. “Marketing is everything, and when you called it a direct payment, it was probably in the crosshairs from day one,” he said. “The reality is the value of the direct payment is becoming more and more clear every day when we see what this farm bill is costing us.” Crawford spoke at the Arkansas Rice Annual Meeting in Jonesboro.
