Farmers want US-China trade spat to end with 'win-win'

Rick Kimberley is a fifth-generation farmer who grows corn and soybeans on 4,000 acres in Iowa. The Kimberleys made it into headlines in 2012 when they hosted Xi Jinping when he was vice-president of China on their farm. Rick has been in the industry for more than 40 years. Should a 25% import tax be imposed on his soybean, of which one third of annual output is exported to China, he would have to give up the business on which he had depended on for a living. Rick said he would say that he hopes China and the US can work it out. "We know that is what's best for both China and the US. It's a great relationship and we just want that to continue," he added.
