American Farm Bureau Federation President Zippy Duvall commented today on the agreement to end a Section 232 tariff dispute between the United States and the European Union.

“Today’s agreement between the United States and the European Union is welcome news for America’s farmers. While the dispute centered around steel and aluminum, farmers were swept up in the turmoil as the EU clamped down on U.S. agricultural exports like orange juice, peanut butter, nuts and many more. It’s crucial that we now restore those trade relationships.

“As we continue to recover from the impact of the global pandemic, America’s farmers need the stability and predictability of strong trade agreements to grow exports and provide healthy, affordable food to our international neighbors.”
