Chinese soybean delegation to visit Minnesota

A Chinese delegation looking at American soybean farming begins its tour with a Minnesota stop Wednesday.

State Agriculture Commissioner Dave Frederickson welcomes the delegation with a St. Paul lunch. The group also will visit a University of Minnesota research center.

“China is an important trading partner for Minnesota’s soybean shippers,” Frederickson said. “Approximately 25 percent of Minnesota’s soybean exports are sent to China.”
