National Corn Growers Association calls USMCA a win for agriculture


The USMCA agreement has officially been signed by President Trump and the National Corn Growers Association is one of many agriculture organizations calling it a big win.

“This is a big win for America’s farmers, our rural communities and the American economy. USMCA builds on our already successful trading partnership with Mexico and Canada,” NCGA President Kevin Ross said. “This agreement should serve as a template for opening the door to new market opportunities for U.S. corn. Corn farmers are grateful for the hard work done by the President, the U.S. Trade Representative and everyone in the Administration who made today’s signing possible.”

Mexico and Canada are the U.S. corn industry’s largest markets. In 2018, the two nations imported $4.56 billion worth of corn and corn co-products from the United States.

Ross was in attendance at the signing with Ohio Corn and Wheat Growers Association President Patty Mann, Minnesota Corn Growers Association President Les Anderson, and Wisconsin Corn Growers Association President Doug Rebout.
