U.S. – China Trade War Will Complicate Montana Farmers’ Plans To Grow Wheat Sales
Montana wheat farmers are eyeing a potential U.S. trade war with China, though tariffs would have moderate effects on state commodities. China in recent years has been a reliable buyer of hard red spring wheat shipped from the Pacific Northwest. Sales in 2017 amounted to 26 million bushels, according to data released last week by U.S. Wheat Associates, with about half the grain coming from Montana.
