Inflexible Were Brazil and India, Says US Corn Growers Association

US corn growers The stalemate in the Doha Round negotiations stems from failure from Brazil and India to agree on non-agricultural market access, not U.S. farm programs, the National Corn Growers Association (NCGA) notes.

"The U.S. farm programs are not the reason that the talks failed," said Ron Litterer, NCGA first vice president." The United States showed a great deal of flexibility in the negotiations in order to try and achieve a successful outcome at the talks. Unfortunately, inflexibility from others in the G4 on market access issues involving agriculture products also led to this development.

"NCGA is grateful for all of the efforts put forth by the U.S. negotiating team," he continued. "U.S. agriculture should take comfort in knowing the team did not accept a bad deal that would hinder American farmers and ranchers."

NCGA presents itself as a strong supporter of multilateral and bilateral efforts to advance free trade and market access for corn growers and its customers. They say they will continue to support the U.S. negotiators as they work to increase market opportunities for agriculture producers.

The National Corn Growers Association states that its mission is to create and increase opportunities for corn growers. NCGA represents more than 32,000 members and 47 affiliated state organizations and hundreds of thousands of growers who contribute to state checkoff programs.
