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.
â€œChina is an important trading partner for Minnesotaâ€™s soybean shippers,â€ Frederickson said. â€œApproximately 25 percent of Minnesotaâ€™s soybean exports are sent to China.â€
