India has agreed to drop retaliatory tariffs on certain U.S. ag exports, providing additional market opportunities for American farmers.
Dave Salmonsen, senior director of government affairs with the American Farm Bureau Federation, says the agreement is a win for producers.
“It was an extra 20% import duty. India has their base tariffs, they added 20% more for various products.”
The U.S. Trade Representative’s Office said Thursday India cut tariffs placed on chickpeas, lentils, almonds, walnuts, and apples.
