OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) -- The Washington Agriculture Department reports farm exports reached record highs in the final quarter of last year and first quarter of this year -- more than $1.9 billion a quarter.

Japan was the top destination from October through March for Washington products, buying wheat, hay and potatoes. Canada was second, buying seafood, apples and vegetables. And China third, buying seafood, potatoes and apples.
