African flour millers from Nigeria, South Africa and Ghana are touring through wheat country this week. The team is traveling through Texas, Kansas, North Dakota and Minnesota to assess trade opportunities and U.S. wheat quality. The tour started Sunday and will wrap up next Friday. The U.S. Wheat Associates says bringing the team to see U.S. wheat quality and to discuss ways to keep their importing costs down is critical during a time of very aggressive competition. Throughout the tour, the team will meet with grain merchandisers and state wheat commissions, and visit farmers in each state to see the progress of this year’s crop.
