Soybean growers encourage USCMA passage in DC
November 19, 2019 By Rhiannon Branch Filed Under: News, Trade
Growers and leaders from the 30 soybean-producing states are
meeting on Capitol Hill today to urge passage of the USCMA by the end of the
American Soybean Association board director and Missouri farmer Ronnie Russell tells Brownfield this agreement is one of their top priorities.
“We are trying to find a way to get the USMCA ratified here in the United States because Canada and Mexico are our two biggest trade partners.”
Mexico is the second largest market for US whole beans, meal
and oil, while Canada is the fourth largest buyer of meal and seventh biggest
buyer of soybean oil.
ASA is confident congress can get the deal done and hopes
their efforts in DC will encourage the process and show support of the agreement.
