Soybean growers group urges restoring trade with China

Lynn Rohrscheib, Illinois Soybean Growers chairwoman and a soybean farmer from Fairmount, Illinois, released the following statement in response to U.S. and China announcing continued trade discussions.

“As the nation’s top soybean-producing state, we are encouraged that talks are occurring between the United States and China leaders with hopes that our soybean market can be restored. Free trade and access to markets are critically important to producers’ livelihoods and profitability. We echo the need for the tariffs to be rescinded. We also need to see the promise of a Farm Bill delivered. Both will help to restore stability to the agriculture industry. Illinois producers have suffered irreversible damages, and the impacts of this trade decision are long-lasting. We are hopeful that new discussions can lead to new breakthroughs that help us for the long term.”

Illinois Soybean Growers is a membership organization serving more than 43,000 Illinois soybean growers. For information, visit www.ilsoygrowers.com.
