A major wheat deal is signed between the United States and Taiwan.
North Dakota producers will provide a large share of the $544 million purchase.
Taiwan will import 70,000 tons or 2.5 million bushels of U.S. wheat each month for two years.
The country is consistently among the top three export markets for U.S. hard red spring wheat.
“I met millers and I met people who are very excited to continue to do business in North Dakota. We’re going to continue to build those relationships which matters so much,” says North Dakota Senator Heidi Heitkamp.
Taiwan is the 4th largest Asian export market for North Dakota producers.
