Promoting U.S. Products. I’m Greg Martin with today’s Fruit Grower Report.
Standing under a cherry tree in an orchard in Grandview, Washington Under Secretary for Farm and Foreign Agricultural Services, Michael Scuse told the folks attending his visit to the Don Olmstead home that the U.S. is known for it’s quality products.
SCUSE: The one thing that I get no matter where I travel whether it be a businesses or government officials the quality of the products that come from the United States, it really doesn’t matter what products we’re talking about, which country we’re in, everyone talks about the quality of products.
And Scuse says it’s a result of a good partnership.
SCUSE: If you look at the cherries on this tree, you’re not going to find production like this, this uniform, of this quality probably anywhere else in the world. I take a great deal of pride in promoting our agricultural products. It’s also when you look at the sales, the foreign sales, I think it’s also a result of a great partnership. A great partnership between industry and the Unites States Department of Agriculture.
Scuse mentioned the Market Access or MAP program.
SCUSE: Where we work with the different commodity groups to gain market access for the various commodities that are produced here in the United States. They put money in; we put money in; states put money in and by the time you combine those resources we can make a real difference in market access.
That’s today’s Fruit Grower Report. I’m Greg Martin on the Ag Information Network.
