TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - State commerce officials say exports by Kansas companies grew by 6.46 percent in 2013, pushed by growth in the sales of cereals and other agricultural products.

The Department of Commerce released the data Thursday, showing that total exports were $12.45 billion. The state’s exports have rebounded in the past three years to near levels last seen in 2008.

Canada, China, Japan and Mexico were the state’s top trading partners. The department says exports to China have grown by nearly $1 billion since 2011.

Cereal exports grew by $686 million, while meat products grew by $298 million. Exports of aircraft and related parts totaled $1.86 billion, the most exported commodity in the state.
