FGIS Reauthorization Update



The several months-long process of reviewing, updating, improving and finally reauthorizing the U.S. Grain Standards Act (USGSA) in the U.S. inspection system came to a close at the end of September, with the President’s signing of the Agriculture Reauthorizations Act of 2015. This was a very important outcome for U.S. exports, as the USGSA enables USDA to develop standards and procedures for grain inspection. From what we can tell so far is that the wheat growers and the industry in general is pleased by this action.

If you have been dealing with DNS wheat this year chances are that you are aware of the Vomitoxin (DON) problems that have plagued growers, export terminals and shippers alike.

There are some recent articles about this that you can click on to find out more information about this.
