Foreign grain buyers touring Illinois farms
SPRINGFIELD (AP) — Grain buyers from around the world are touring Illinois farms this week.
The tour started Monday, with a visit to a corn and soybean farm in central Illinois, and is scheduled to end Friday with a visit to the Chicago Board of Trade. About 20 international buyers in the delegation are from China, Malaysia, Mexico, Peru, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan and Vietnam. They have been accompanied by members of the Illinois Department of Agriculture.
Jim Mackey, an international market representative for the department, said the buyers are particularly concerned about drought damage.
