Must-Win Fight: U.S. Grains Council says it’s imperative we win the biotech corn fight against Mexico

As Mexico continues to push against U.S. biotech corn, grain experts warn that losing this fight could open the door for more attacks on U.S. commodities.

Andrew Brandt with the U.S. Grains Council warns if we lose to Mexico on GM corn, it could allow activists to push even further. He says other countries could take the same stance, leading to the same argument again.

A three-person dispute panel was formed in October to decide the U.S. complaint against Mexico. Chief Ag Negotiator Doug McKalip says he expects an answer some time next spring.
