The North American Millers' Association (NAMA) has praised the decision by the US Trade Representative (USTR) not to impose restrictions on wheat entering the US from Canada. US millers occasionally buy Canadian wheat for specific milling, baking or pasta properties and to supplement the US crop. The US durum crop was insufficient to meet demand in 15 out of the last 15 years. The hard red spring wheat crop was insufficient in 12 of the last 15 years.
