U.S. Sells Wheat To Cuba

A shipment of 30,000 metric tons of wheat from Texas, Oklahoma and Kansas is part of the first trade deal between Cuba and the U.S. in 40 years.

Cuba has been under U.S. trade embargo since 1963. ADM/Farmland, a grain merchandising business, negotiated the Cuban grain sale under a year-old U.S. law that permits food and medicine sales to the island.
