The Chairman of the House Agriculture Committee says March is still a possibility for a new Farm Bill; however, there are no guarantees.

Glenn GT Thompson told Brownfield Ag News the month of March would be the first time the House would have enough time to work on the new Farm Bill, but the markup and voting process takes at least three weeks.

Thompson says most of the Farm Bill is completed, but work continues on the Commodities Title and Conservation Funding. The Chairman also suspects the Senate will need more time through the rest of the year.
