|Written by Holyoke Enterprise|
Colorado’s agricultural exports for the first six months of 2013 totaled $725.6 million, an increase of $14.5 million over the same period for 2012.
Increases in exports to Canada of $23.1 million and to Hong Kong of $18.2 million helped to offset a $27 million decrease in exports to Russia. The $725.6 million level recorded for the first six months of 2013 represents a twenty percent increase in just the past two years.
Colorado’s agricultural export growth included increased imports by seven of Colorado’s top ten markets. While Canada’s increase covered a wide spectrum of products, Hong Kong’s import increase was all red meats.
