U.S. sales of wheat are back to normal levels after a genetically-modified strain of the crop turned up in Eastern Oregon last spring.

Japan and South Korea stopped importing U.S. wheat in May after the biotech wheat surfaced.

The Capital Press reports that those countries are back to buying at normal levels after a month of cautious trade.

An industry spokesman says he’s optimistic about the market’s recovery.

The USDA continues to investigate how the unauthorized biotech wheat grew in Oregon.
