TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- Agriculture Secretary Dale Rodman will be leading a delegation of Kansas officials on a trade mission to China and South Korea.

Rodman will head the 18-member group that leaves Saturday for 10 days to Asia. Others on the trip will be farmers, ranchers and agribusiness leaders from across Kansas.

During their trip, the delegation will meet with existing trade partners who purchase Kansas products, as well as with potential new buyers for livestock and grain products. The delegation will also tour importing and processing facilities.

The delegation will be visiting Seoul, Beijing and Shanghai.

The United States entered a free-trade agreement in March and Kansas representatives are looking to explore ways to expand markets. Agriculture exports to South Korea topped $125 million in 2011.
