Wisconsin imports to Asia increase

UNDATED (WSAU-Wheeler News)  Wisconsin plant products continue to be exported at a record pace, thanks to a booming market in Asia.

State officials said they issued 60-percent more export certificates from January-through-March than a year ago -- and eleven-percent more than the previous record from 2010. It was the fourth quarter in a row that record exports were reported. The certificates are required for shipping nursery plants, seeds and grain, lumber, and decorating materials.

Last year, almost $870-million in plant products were sold to other countries from Wisconsin. Wood, corn, and soybean products make up 98-percent of the certified shipments. Southeast Asia, China, and Taiwan are the largest export markets.
