MANHATTAN, KANSAS, U.S. — With an expected increase of soybean exports to Pakistan over the next year, the IGP Institute hosted Pakistani ag producers to provide more info about U.S. agriculture.

The IGP Institute held the Pakistan Trade Group course Oct. 15-18.

“The participants who attended the course possessed a great depth of knowledge and experience,” said Guy Allen, IGP Institute senior economist and course instructor. “They all were highly skilled in their industries of oilseed crushing and poultry production.”

Since the participants had a good understanding of the issues and developments in their industry, Allen was able to tailor the course material for a more in-depth training experience for them.

The four-day course consisted of U.S. grain production and marketing systems, export contracts, futures, derivatives, grain handling and storage methods as well as new developments in animal nutrition and feed formulation.

“We were able to deliver value to these important buyers of U.S. soybean, which can potentially benefit both countries,” Allen said.
