Here is the 2009 U.S. Grains Council Corn Mission team. Ready to rumble in Morocco, Egypt and Jordan. This photo was taken today in Frankfurt airport.
We have arrived at our first Moroccan destination and are getting ready for a meal and initial briefing on our activities. I’ll know more in a little while and will be posting some more pics still this evening.
The team includes the following corn growers and USGC Representative. I started them out with a short interview to learn about their farms and expectations for this trip. You can listen to the interviews and download them from the links below.
