WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - Kansas agriculture groups have formed a group to push for the lifting of a trade embargo with Cuba.

The Wichita Eagle (https://bit.ly/2cZHapH ) reports that Engage Cuba’s Kansas State Council includes representatives of the Kansas Wheat Commission, Kansas Soybean Association, Kansas Farm Bureau, Kansas Livestock Association and the Kansas Corn Growers Association.

The state council is part of Engage Cuba, a coalition of private U.S. companies and organizations working to build support for congressional action to end the ban in order to sell more grain and other commodities in Cuba.
