North Dakota officials are optimistic Cuba will agree to buy potatoes grown in the state.

But several barriers - including obtaining travel visas for Cuban inspectors who would come to North Dakota - must be overcome first.

State Agriculture Commissioner Roger Johnson is in Havana, Cuba, with an 18-person delegation of state officials and agricultural producers who hope to sell potatoes and several other ag commodities to the Cubans.

America's 45-year embargo stops most trade between the two countries.
