  Q. How important is agricultural trade to the U.S. economy?

A. 

The United States is now the world's largest agricultural exporter. The value of agricultural exports equals nearly one-fourth of farm cash receipts, about twice the level of the overall U.S. economy, and 1 out of 3 acres are planted for export.
