U.S. FARM EXPORTS TO CUBA SURGE IN JANUARY
Agri-Pulse reports:

January is traditionally a major month for Cuban ag imports, and that was the case this year as U.S. shipments of poultry, soybeans, rice and other commodities were valued at about $19 million.

U.S. ag exports to Cuba in the first month of the year were about 42% higher than in January 2020. While that's good news, says John S. Kavulich, president of the U.S.-Cuba Trade and Economic Council Inc., the spike is not a result of any major policy changes that U.S. farm groups are hoping the Biden administration will support to remove trade restrictions.

Poultry made up most of the increase in Cuban ag imports from the U.S. Cuba, despite the trade and travel restrictions imposed by the U.S., is the fourth largest foreign market for U.S. poultry.
