National Corn Growers Association issues legislative priority list

(Tuesday, Jan. 21, 2003 -- CropChoice news) -- The National Corn Growers Association, in a letter to House and Senate leaders earlier this month, urged legislators to focus on three areas when it comes to agriculture and trade:

  • Elimination of the European Union moratorium on genetically modified crops and defeat of the EU proposed legislation for labeling of such foods and tracing to their sources.
  • Continue pushing China to eliminate its export subsidies for corn.
  • Resolve a dispute with Mexico that has limited U.S. agribusiness access to that market for high fructose corn syrup. The issue involves Mexico's desire for a larger presence in the U.S. sugar market.
