Falling agricultural exports and declining commodity prices led farm groups and agribusiness firms to urge the 106th Congress to pass legislation exempting foods and agricultural commodities from U.S. economic sanctions against certain countries. In completing action on the FY2001 agriculture appropriations bill, Congress codified the lifting of unilateral sanctions on commercial sales of food, agricultural commodities, medicine, and medical products to Iran, Libya, North Korea, and Sudan, and extended this policy to apply to Cuba (Title IX of H.R. 5426, as enacted by P.L. 106-387; Trade Sanctions Reform and Export Enhancement Act of 2000, or TSRA). Other provisions place financing and licensing conditions on sales to these countries. Those that apply to Cuba, though, are permanent and more restrictive. TSRA also gives Congress the authority in the future to veto a President's proposal to impose a sanction on the sale of agricultural or medical products. Codifying the food and medical sales exemption for Cuba generated the most controversy. Exemption proponents argued that prohibiting sales to Cuba harmed the U.S. agricultural sector, and that opening up limited trade would be one way to pursue a "constructive engagement" policy. Opponents countered that an exemption would undercut U.S. policy to pressure the Castro government to make political and economic reforms. Though top Cuban officials initially stated that no purchases would be made with TSRA's conditions in place, food stock losses caused by a hurricane and an apparent shift in Cuban strategy have led to $925 million in cash purchases by Cuba of U.S. farm commodities and food products from December 2001 to May 2005. Agricultural sales to Iran, Libya, and Sudan under TSRA have totaled $237 million. Rules issued to implement TSRA by the Department of Commerce's Bureau of Industry and Security allow for the commercial sale of eligible agricultural products to Cuba without an export license if other federal agencies do not object within 11 days. Related regulations issued by the Department of Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) require an export license for agricultural product sales to Iran and Sudan. Congressional opponents of TSRA₂s prohibitions on the private U.S. financing of agricultural sales, public financing of eligible exports, and tourist travel to Cuba introduced bills in the 107th and 108th Congresses to repeal these provisions. Though several amendments to repeal or relax certain TSRA provisions with respect to Cuba were adopted during committee markups or passed during floor debate, all were dropped in subsequent conference action. The Bush Administration₂s policy is to allow sales under TSRA, but not to change any aspect of the embargo until political and economic reforms occur in Cuba. Reflecting this stance, Administration officials have continually signaled to conferees they would advise the President to veto any bill that included any change in TSRA₂s prohibitions against Cuba. In the 109th Congress, H.R. 719/S. 328, H.R. 1339/S. 634, S.Amdt. 281 and S.Amdt. 282 to S. 600, and identical House and Senate provisions in H.R. 3058 respond to a recent OFAC rule clarifying the ₃payment of cash in advance₄ provision governing agricultural sales to Cuba. Opposition by farm groups and some Members to this rule, which took effect March 25, 2005, has led to ongoing debate on this issue

Most of the U.S. agricultural export gains under FTAs have occurred with Canada and Mexico, the top two U.S. agricultural trading partners. Though U.S. sales to overseas markets were expected to increase anyway because of population growth and income gains, analyses suggest that the FTAs recently put into effect or concluded since 2004 could boost U.S. agricultural exports by an additional 2.0 per cent to 2.7 per cent. Large gains are also projected under the potential FTA with South Korea. Because of the reciprocity introduced into the agricultural trading relationship in those FTAs concluded with several developing countries that protect their farm sectors with high tariffs and restrictive quotas, U.S. exporters will benefit from increased sales.Net U.S. agricultural imports under these FTAs could be 1.4 per cent higher than forecast. The share of two-way U.S. agricultural trade (exports and imports) covered by FTAs has increased from 1 per cent in 1985 (when the first FTA took effect) to 41 per cent in 2006 (reflecting FTAs with 13 countries). Ranked in order, they are Canada, Mexico, Australia, Chile, Guatemala, Honduras, Israel, El Salvador, Singapore, Morocco, Nicaragua, Jordan, and Bahrain. If trade is included with nine other countries with which FTAs have been: approved but are not yet in effect (Costa Rica and Oman); concluded and awaiting consideration in the 110th Congress (Colombia, Panama, Peru and South Korea); recently took effect (Dominican Republic); and may be concluded (Thailand and Malaysia), another 9 per cent of U.S. agricultural trade would be covered
