The delegation, chaired by Professor Jim Mazurkiewicz, was composed of the young farmers from Texas who had come to Poland under the Poland-Texas exchange programme for young farmers, organised by the Polish Association of Cereal Producers.

The project has been implemented since 2013. During the stay of its participants in Poland, each time a meeting at the MARD is organised, dedicated to the agricultural policy issues. The objective of the project is to establish permanent contacts among the agricultural organisations in Poland and in the USA and to create for young farmers a possibility of exchanging experience and knowledge.

During the meeting, the young farmers from Texas had a chance to become familiar with the basic figures concerning Polish agriculture and EU agricultural policy. Professor J. Mazurkiewicz stressed that thanks to the programme, local communities and associations in Texas represented by the exchange participants learned more about Poland and Polish agriculture.
