Minnesota corn farmer disheartened by Mexico GM corn ban

There’s heightened concern about U.S. market impact as Mexico moves forward with its ban on genetically modified corn.

Minnesota farmer Jim O’Connor says the Mexican government is not abiding by the U.S. Mexico Canada Agreement.

“It really is disheartening, however there are procedures and we just have to follow those procedures I guess at this point.”

O’Connor serves on the Minnesota Corn Research and Promotion Council, the National Corn Growers Association ethanol team, and recently was elected to the U.S.
