The National Corn Growers Association is encouraged by a deal between the United States and Japan that is expected to give increased access to American agriculture products in Japan. 

As part of the deal, Japan will buy excess corn, but it will also give more market access to beef, pork, wheat, dairy products, wine and ethanol.

“This is very encouraging news,” NCGA President Lynn Chrisp said in a release. “Japan is the second-largest purchaser of U.S. corn and has been an important, longstanding trading partner with America’s corn farmers. We hope the next stage of negotiations are successful in enhancing rules of trade and building on this strong relationship.....There is more work to do. Moving forward, it’s important the Administration continue efforts to gain market access for U.S. products and work to reaffirm its commitment to renewable fuels.”

According to Chrisp, the NCGA has had continued conversation with President Trump's administration about the specifics of the deal, which was agreed in principle Sunday. You can see how lawmakers reacted to the deal here
