KUNA, Idaho (AP) - Officials say the big yields being harvested in Idaho this year are not expected to bring in matching revenue.

KTVB-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1F5ZXKT ) that the Idaho Farm Bureau says the market is flooded with crops and milk, driving prices way down.

Idaho Farm Bureau spokesman Jake Putman says farm gate revenue is expected be to down 20 to 30 percent this year.

Agriculture is a major industry in Idaho, where it employs around 100,000 people. Most of those employees will see less money this year, potentially sending less spending into the economy.
