Iowa Farm Bureau seeks participants for China trip

~WEST DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - The Iowa Farm Bureau is seeking participants for a market study tour of China.
 
     The group says it's now accepting applications from its members for a trip that includes meeting with Chinese farmers, agriculture business leaders, government officials and Beijing citizens. It is tentatively scheduled for early July.
 
     Officials say China holds market demand potential for Iowa's corn, soybeans and pork. They say the tour will give Iowa farmers inside knowledge of China's internal agriculture issues, and will poise Iowa farmers to meet those demands.
 
     Applications will be selected based on group participation and other factors. They will be accepted through the end of February.
