Rural America helped Donald Trump win the US presidential election in part because of his promise to protect US farmers.
But since taking office, Trump has scrapped the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), that was expected to expand agricultural exports by $4bn a year.
He has also threatened to revamp the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).
Some people fear the president could make it harder to sell on a global stage at a time when they desperately need new customers.
