Ah, Competing FTAs

The U.S. wheat industry is citing the threat of Mercosur to encourage passage of the Colombia-U.S. FTA:

U.S. wheat producers need this FTA to compete in the Colombian market on the basis on quality and supply with wheat from other countries. Argentine wheat enjoys trade preferences under the Mercosur agreement. Canada and Colombia have ratified a separate FTA that will eliminate import tariffs on Canadian wheat and most other agricultural goods likely by July of this year.
