From the Ag Information Network, this is your Agribusiness Update.

**Six of the nation’s major commodity groups sent a letter to the International Trade Commission encouraging a NO vote in advancing a petition from Corteva Agribusiness.

The petition asks ITC to place antidumping and countervailing duties on imports of the herbicide 2-4D shipped from India and China.

The letter says, Corteva is the only U.S. supplier of 2-4D, and America’s farmers cannot rely on a sole domestic supplier to meet the market’s needs.

**The USDA has a new Livestock Indemnity Program Decision Tool and farm loan resources available to ag producers who help others access USDA disaster assistance and farm loan programs.

The new tool and the farm loan informational video were developed in partnership between FarmRaise and USDA’s Farm Service Agency.

The LIP Decision Tool helps producers who suffered losses, while giving producers guidance on needed documentation.

**Forecasters say the spring severe weather season may quickly shift into high gear with favorable tornado conditions over the next few weeks.

Long Range AccuWeather Forecaster, Joe Lundberg says springtime is a severe weather time of year, and we expect this May will be no exception.

A cold front moving across the Midwest, Ohio Valley, and the Northeast could stall out across the South-Central Plains and the northern Gulf states today or tomorrow.
