Trade agreements necessary for agriculture

An agricultural economics professor at Texas A&M says it’s critical that trade agreements like the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) remain in place.

Parr Rosson says that ag exports are essential to the US economy and Canada and Mexico combined are more important to the US than China.

He says it’s uncertain what will happen with the agreement since talks have been pushed back into March. The new agreement was originally expected to be reached by the end of this year.

Rosson spoke at the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago’s annual agriculture conference this week.
