This report contains a series of tables which depict the flow of commodities between North Dakota and Minnesota for the year 1969. The data represents commodities which originated in each state and the first market destination was in one of the states (the product, in fact, may have been transshipped after being handled in some way in North Dakota or Minnesota). It does not contain a reporting of the flow of commodities through one or the other state which may have terminated in one of the states. It is important to keep this distinction in mind when reviewing this data.
