Virginia farmers can count Cuba out as a possible place to sell their products, again.

Virginia Commissioner of Agriculture and Consumer Services Carlton Courter says state officials have decided to cancel an agricultural trade mission to Cuba set for this spring. Courter said the political climate is not conducive to furthering trade right now.

Officials with 12 Virginia companies accompanied Courter and Secretary of Commerce and Trade Michael Schewel on a trade mission to Cuba last October, trying to sell wood, pork, apples and soybeans to the island nation.

Maryland agricultural officials recently announced they have canceled a scheduled trade mission to Cuba as well.
