BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Idaho Gov. Brad Little has signed a two-year agreement supporting Idaho wheat sales to Taiwan in a deal that officials say gives wheat producers a reliable buyer and Taiwan a dependable supplier. The Republican governor on Monday participated in the signing with officials from Taiwan, the Idaho wheat industry and Taiwan Flour Mills Association. Wheat is one of Idaho’s top crops, and it's been exported to Taiwan for decades. Idaho grew 76.5 million bushels of wheat in 2021, down from 112.5 million bushels in 2020. Idaho agricultural officials say Idaho appears to have a bumper crop this year.
