Farm bill expiration impacts export programs

The expiration of the 2008 Farm Bill on Sept. 30 brought with it the end of funding for the Foreign Market Development program and the Market Access Program.  These two programs leverage farmer and agribusiness investments to build an active outreach program in more than 50 countries.

MAP and FMD cooperators, like the U.S. Grains Council and U.S. Meat Export Federation, employ staff around the world, build and defend U.S. market share of corn and related co-products and directly foster sales opportunities for U.S. products. Although the United States Department of Agriculture and the Foreign Agricultural Service have enabled the temporary continuation of FMD, available funds will run out in the coming months.
