A new site at http://www.AgExportsCount.org has launched to offer information about export market development programs in the U.S. farm bill and the successes they have achieved.
This website is intended to be a resource for information about the outreach supported by the USDA’s Market Access Program (MAP) and Foreign Market Development (FMD) program, including those operated by the U.S. Grains Council (USGC) to promote U.S.-produced feed grains, related products and ethanol.
The site features an interactive map of success stories from the many organizations that utilize MAP and FMD funds, including U.S. commodity trade associations, farmer cooperatives, non-profit state-regional trade groups and small businesses.
These stories span the breadth and depth of American agriculture, from high-volume commodities like corn, sorghum, barley, wheat and soybeans, to meat and dairy products, to high-value commodities and specialty crops, including fruits, nuts, timber products and more.
