NAT'L CORN GROWERS ASSN ISSUES STATEMENT ON CHANGES TO U.S.-CUBA POLICY
National Corn Growers Association (NCGA) reports:

The following is a statement from Texas farmer Wesley Spurlock, president of the National Corn Growers Association, in response to today's announcement on U.S. policy toward Cuba.

"Cuba should be an easy market for U.S. corn farmers. Instead, that market has gone to our competitors-costing us an estimated $125 million in lost opportunity each year. If trade with Cuba were normalized, it would represent our 11th largest market for corn.

"Instead, we have just 11 percent market share in a country only 90 miles from our border. At a time when the farm economy is struggling, we ask our leaders in Washington not to close doors on market opportunities for American agriculture."
