RENO, Nev. (AP) — Nevada's food and agricultural exports reached a milestone last year, exceeding 2012 sales by more than $19 million.

The Nevada Department of Agriculture says export sales hit $137 million in 2013, an increase of 17 percent from the year before.

Food and agricultural products are Nevada's ninth largest export category. Products include cereals, flour and starches, grains, fruits and vegetables, trees, plants, and beverages and spirits.

Canada, China, Mexico and Japan were Nevada's top four markets for agricultural products last year.
