The Council worked with a U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Cochran Fellowship Program to arrange for training of fellows from Egypt and Jordan on the U.S. grain inspection system, conducted by the IGP Institute in Manhattan, Kansas. In addition to lectures and labs, the group visited a local cooperative, the USDA Federal Grain Inspection Service (FGIS) in both Kansas City and New Orleans and export facilities in New Orleans.
