Farm Groups Backing Programs Supporting Ag Exports

USAgNet - 03/15/2021

More than 100 agriculture groups have sent letters to the House and Senate Agriculture Appropriations Subcommittee chairs and ranking members urging full funding for USDA's Market Access Program and the Foreign Market Development Program, which both support export markets for U.S. farm goods.

The letter stated that the twin challenges presented by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, as well as competitors’ export promotion programs, highlight the need for continued investment in these public-private partnerships.

Supporters say MAP/FMD funding is critical to help U.S. farmers, ranchers and food exporters keep pace and to help us make up for lost time after two and half years of trade conflict and retaliatory tariffs.
