Quotes-start.png The impact of the president’s escalating trade war with China has been particularly stark for the sector, which saw the value of exports to China plummet by more than half according to the most recently available federal data, from $19.5 billion in 2017 to $9.1 billion last year. This is in a trade that had grown eightfold since 2000. The decline continued through the first half of this year, with agricultural exports to China $1.3 billion off last year’s steeply diminished level. Quotes-end.png
