Nebraska Corn has been very vocal about the impacts that the Mexico Decree will have on trade and the state in general. The Nebraska Corn Board and Nebraska Corn Growers Association urge an immediate response from the Biden Administration regarding the decree.

Mexico published an updated decree on February 13th which will revoke authorizations and permits to import, produce, distribute, and use the herbicide glyphosate and genetically modified corn in the midst of trade tensions with the United States. Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO) has clearly violated the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) trade pact by issuing this decree to ban the imports of GM corn. Nebraska Corn stresses that a consultation process for a dispute under USMCA must be initiated immediately.
