South Dakota Wheat
Two South Dakota companies have already seen results from a recent trade mission to China, according to Gov. Dennis Daugaard, who led the March trade mission.
American farmers need China. We need access to Chinese markets so we can sell our crops to Chinese customers–something we’re now doing at record levels, in fact. And here’s the really good news: China needs us too.
The experts were out talking about the wheat and global agricultural trade outlook recently. Taking a short-term view while speaking last week in Antigua, Guatemala, U.S. Wheat Associates (USW) Vice President of Overseas Operations Vince Peterson suggested that further downward moves in the wheat markets in coming weeks may create a buying and pricing opportunity for U.S. wheat importers. Looking longer term, U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Director of Global Policy Analysis Michael Dwyer told an industry export organization that macroeconomic conditions continue to support higher prices for agricultural commodities, including wheat.
