Talking about U.S. agriculture trade

In this special edition of Farm Futures Market Update, Jacqui Fatka digs into a range of export issues with Floyd Gaibler, U.S. Grains Council

The world is in turmoil, yet global trade continues. Just what's ahead for U.S. farm exports? What are the opportunities? And what should farmers be aware of as the year unfolds.

Recently, we caught up with Floyd Gaibler, director of trade policy and biotechnology, U.S. Grains Council to talk Phase 1, trade with Japan and the opportunity to open other markets for the future.

While Covid-19 has captured the headlines, China is returning to the market. Phase 1 is in place, and are they buying? Gaibler offers his insight. He's worked with ag, food and trade issues in both the executive and legislative branches of the federal government and done work in the private sector.

Gaibler offers a straightforward look at the opportunities and issues ahead for U.S. agriculture.

Farm Futures Market Update is a periodic show that looks at a range of issues in agriculture. We will have more ahead including a discussion with the head of USDA's Natural Resource Conservation Service about key issues for farmers. And we'll talk with the head of USDA's Farm Service Agency about work going on there.
