NAFTA Concerns Grow Among Ag Interests

Concerns are growing among commodity organizations and other agricultural industry interest groups over what will happen with the future of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). Canada and Mexico are significant export markets for U.S. agricultural commodities, and a withdrawal or collapse of NAFTA could lead to significant tariffs for exports making U.S. commodities disadvantaged to other nations with similar commodities.  The concern has escalated to the point of major commodity groups, including USA Rice, to call on farmers to contact the White House to urge President Trump to not withdraw from NAFTA.
