Illinois Corn Growers Association President Ted Mottaz, a farmer from Elmwood, Ill., issued the following statement after Mexico’s Senate ratified the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA):

 

“Mexico is a vital trading partner for Illinois corn farmers. We are thrilled to learn that Mexico’s Senate has made the crucial step in ratifying the USMCA agreement. We’re appreciative of President López Obrador’s leadership on the issue, as well as being appreciative of the support of the Mexican Senate. Illinois is responsible for growing more than forty percent of the corn that Mexico imports via rail and water transportation routes and we’re looking forward to continuing this strong trading relationship.”
