Missouri’s Ag Director says the recent USDA trade mission to

Chinn says they toured the CIMMYT, Mexico’s corn and wheat research facility, “Which is the corn and wheat research facility and it was really amazing there. They have the ability to store seed so there were varieties back in the beginning of corn and wheat that were stored there.”
Chinn says wheat isn’t as big of an import priority for U.S.
