Wisconsin’s legislation backing agricultural exports has been signed into law.  Governor Tony Evers signed Assembly Bill 314 Friday, which directs the Department of Ag, Trade, and Consumer Protection to work with the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation on a plan to increase the value of Wisconsin’s ag exports by 25 percent by June 30, 2026.

Co-author Senator Joan Ballweg says in three of the past five years, Wisconsin saw declines in agribusiness exports with an aggregate loss of over $64 million.
