$12 billion in aid for farmers is causing anxiety for some Iowans waiting for their checks. 

“If we knew when we were getting it and how much, it makes a difference in how we allocate our acres to which crop,” said Rolland Schnell of Jasper County. 

President Trump tweeted Monday that help will be on its way soon.

Schnell says he received $20,000 in just a few weeks after applying for aid. 

Farmers have until January 15, 2019, to apply for the first round of aid.
