Value of Trade


The value of trade and continuous export expansion

“Agriculture is the U.S. Foreign Trade Champion”

With nearly 95 percent of the world’s consumers living outside the United States, world markets offer momentous growth opportunities for U.S. agriculture. The U.S. Grains Council works to develop export markets for American farmers and agribusinesses. With the most modern, innovative and productive agricultural system in the world, the United States enjoys a longstanding and significant comparative advantage in agricultural trade. As a shining star of U.S. international trade, agricultural exports are increasing profitability for farmers and creating economic activity in rural communities across the country.
