for grain trade
By Dick Hovorka
Grain trade between the United States and Poland will
decline in the next few years, according to Poland Vice
Minister of Agriculture Henryk Burczyk, head of a five
man delegation from Poland visiting Lincoln to study
At a news conference Thursday afternoon, Burczyk
said the United States has s five-year grain agreement with
Poland to supply it with wheat, but the quantity "will be
reduced in such a way so our production will be higher."
He said that although Poland imports much of its grain
from the Soviet Union, it also imports grain from coun
tries such as the United States, Canada and France.
Collective and government-owned and operated farms
comprise 18 per cent of Polish farmland, Burczyk said,
and the other 82 per cent is individually owned. The size
of farms range from two to 30 acres.
"The individual fanners are taking the direction of
specialization," Burczyk said.
Comparing Poland's environment to North Dakota, he
said the water table in Poland is such that irrigation is not
a major problem, but it causes some drainage problems.
Virgil Johnson, UNL professor of agronomy, said the
Polish delegation is studying seed production and plant
growing, learning methods for introducing American agri
cultural practices and gaining knowledge on organizing
"The University of Nebraska is one of the best in the
world (in agricultural research), especially the wheat re
search done by Dr. Johnson and his staff," Burczyk said.
"We would like to send graduate students and experts
to the United States to study. We would also like to see
VS. experts in Poland."
Johnson said the delegation will be taking a special
look at wheat research, plant breeding and genetics, while
The Polish delegation is not the first group to visit
UNL's agricultural research department. Johnson said rep
resentatives from other countries have visited and plans
are being made for a visit from a South African delegation.
"There are experimental equipment we are using and
research we are doing that we received from other
countries," he said.
The delegation's last stops in Lincoln will include a
tour of the Cathedral of the Risen Christ Roman Catholic
Church, the Capitol and the Gateway shopping center.
