NSP Statement on USMCA Agreement

WASHINGTON, D.C. – National Sorghum Producers Board of Directors Chairman Dan Atkisson, a sorghum farmer from Stockton, Kansas, made the following statement in response to the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA).

“The new USMCA agreement is well received news for sorghum producers. The new trilateral agreement with Mexico and Canada is an important step forward as the United States works toward fair, open trade markets. Mexico continues to be a top buyer of U.S. grain sorghum, and we will strive for continued market expansion with our southern neighbors.

“We appreciate the efforts put forth by leadership from each participating country. We see this as a win for producers and hope to carry the progressive momentum into 2019. We encourage congress to promptly approve the new agreement.”
