Trade disruptions impact markets. U.S. Soybean Export Council Vice President Monte Peterson, who farms at Valley City, North Dakota, says there is time to find a solution. “There’s a comment period on Section 301/intellectual property. So these tariffs do not get implemented immediately. That opens the opportunity for President Trump to have discussions with China and find a resolution.” Peterson is scheduled to visit China in mid-April. The current trade spat will likely influence this trade trip. “We’re appreciative of China’s business with the U.S. soy industry for a great number of years. We’d like nothing better than to see it continue.”
