Brexit Could Bring Market, Policy Impacts for U.S. Grains

first_img SHARE Britain’s decision last month to leave the European Union could have both market and trade policy effects on the U.S. grain industry, though the U.S. Grains Council says exactly how the change could impact farmers’ bottom lines is among the many unanswered questions. The EU does not import large volumes of U.S. corn due to trade barriers related to biotechnology. Overall, the total value of all types of U.S. feed grain and related products that were exported in the 2014/2015 marketing year was about $745 million. Though the initial grain market impact eased quickly, USGC says follow-on effects on exports could be seen from a stronger U.S. dollar. Markets might also face negative impacts from Brexit on the euro area and, to a lesser extent, the global economy, affecting demand for grain and the meat it produces. However, the largest and longest-term impacts of the Brexit on grains could come from the trade policy arena, not the marketplace.The Grains Council says the vote will put the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership talks between the United States and the European Union in potential jeopardy.Source: NAFB News Service Brexit Could Bring Market, Policy Impacts for U.S. Grains Facebook Twitter Previous articleCountryMark’s Fueling Freedom Raised More than $63,000 to Support Indiana National GuardNext articleIndiana 4th BBQ Cost Less than Year Ago Hoosier Ag Today By Hoosier Ag Today – Jul 4, 2016 SHARE Home News Feed Brexit Could Bring Market, Policy Impacts for U.S. Grains Facebook Twitterlast_img
