WASHINGTON -- A federal trade panel ruled yesterday that a flood of Canadian wheat shipments to the United States is crippling U.S. farm programs and said imports should be curbed.The decision by the International Trade Commission is seen as a victory for the Clinton administration, which sought restrictions. The finding could strengthen the hand of top U.S. trade and agricultural officials in resolving differences with Canada over trade in wheat and other agricultural goods.In its decision, the bipartisan panel held that the surge in durum wheat imports over the past four years drove down wheat prices in the United States, increased U.S. government subsidies and requires retaliatory restrictions, such as quotas or tariffs.

Behind the new U.S.-Canadian wheat agreement, which ostensibly averts a trade war at the expense of American pasta eaters, lurk hyper-costly federal farm subsidies that hit taxpayers coming and going. Consider: the federal government generously doles out $1.9 billion a year to wheat farmers to support the market price of their crop. At the same, good old Uncle Sucker spends another $1 billion a year to encourage farm exports that tend to drive down the price of wheat.This is part of a very big business.
