October was the all-time best month ever for U.S. ag exports to China. The chief agriculture negotiator in the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative, Gregg Doud, said there’s potential for November’s data to be even better. China is also following through on their phase one trade deal commitments. “They’ve done 50 of the 57 requirements on the checklist,” said Doud. “Some of the others, we’re still working on. China has done well on the tariff-rate quota administration for the first time ever. No one has ever sold China the amount of corn they’ve imported in the last few months. Some of that is out of necessity and some of that is out of the fact we got them to adhere to the rules.” Doud was part of the Prairie Grains Conference.
