ASTA Sends Letter to USTR on Trade Tariffs

  • On December 22, 2021

On December 1, ASTA sent a letter to the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) regarding the impact of Section 301 List Three tariffs on U.S. seed companies. While USTR has initiated a process to reinstate certain exclusions, these tariffs remain in place for 20 vegetable and flower seed products that are not eligible for consideration under this initial review. ASTA is requesting that USTR expeditiously initiate a similar review process for products such as these, which received an initial exclusion but were not granted a second extension.
