Today, U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) Katherine Tai announced the United States has requested to form a panel, the next step in the dispute settlement process under the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) regarding Mexico’s ban on biotech corn.

“Nebraska Corn appreciates the USTR taking the step of requesting a formal panel regarding the biotech corn ban in Mexico,” said Chris Grams, President of the Nebraska Corn Growers Association. “The Nebraska Corn Growers Association and Nebraska Corn Board have long called for action in defense of biotech corn, and this panel sends a strong signal of the worldwide necessity of biotech corn and the corn industry.”
