Moving Forward with Mexico: U.S. meets to determine a path forward over GMO corn ban

USDA is reviewing the latest amendments to Mexico’s ban on bio-tech corn.

Ag Secretary Tom Vilsack and U.S. Trade Representative Katherine Tai met with Mexican government officials last week. In a joint statement, they said it was a candid conversation, and both sides realize a path forward must be determined soon.

For its part, Mexico says it hopes to reach an agreement in January. Secretary Vilsack says he is still in favor or filing a trade dispute if an agreement cannot be reached.

National Corn Growers Association Trade and Biotechnology Director, Angus Kelly spoke with RFD-TV’s own Janet Adkison on where we currently stand on the matter, the impact this could have on U.S. farmers, and the type of timeline we are looking at.
