January 29, 2020

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Fertilizer Institute (TFI) Vice President of Stewardship and Sustainability Lara Moody released the following statement regarding President Trump signing the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA).  
“We commend President Trump for doing exactly what he said he would do; provide a win for agriculture and the millions of hard working men and women who grow the food, fuel and fiber that feeds our growing world by securing an improved trade deal with our two largest agricultural trading partners. In addition to President Trump, TFI thanks U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for their bipartisan efforts to put American workers and industry in a position to be able to compete on the global stage by ensuring that markets remain open and fair. President Trump signing the USMCA will strengthen U.S. agriculture and the countless communities whose economic well-being is tied directly to the soil.”
