A farmland in the USA, illustration only

I knew America exports wheat and corns long time ago. Actually, USA have exported many agricultural products, include:

- coarse grains
- tobacco
- oil seeds
- cotton
- meat and poultry
- horticultural products
- food processing products

Interestingly, some well known tropical products such as rice, soybeans and even date fruits are exported by USA.

USA have exported dates to several developed nations such as Australia, Canada and the United Kingdom. 



A country side view

The value of date fruits exported was US US$ 67.1 million or Euro 60 million in 2018 (please see my previous post: Do You Know that America Exports Date Fruits?).

The question then What is the State with Most Farmland in the USA? Here are the top 6:

1) Texas
- Farmland is about 29 million acres (12 million ha).
- The land produces most cotton

2) Kansas
- Farmland is about 28.6 million acres (11.6 million ha)
- The land produces most corn

3) North Dakota
- Farmland is about 27.1 million acres (11 million ha)
- The land produces most soybeans

4) Iowa
- Farmland is about 26.7 million acres (10.8 million ha)
- The land produces most corn

5) Illinois
- Farmland is about 23.9 million acres (9.7 million ha)
- The land produces most corn

6) Minnesota
- Farmland is about 22.5 acres (9.1 million ha)
- The land produces most corn


Finally, 3 products most produced by 6 states are corn, soybeans and cotton. How about with your country or state? What agricultural products are produced?

  8. I would not have guessed that Texas had the most farmland, even though it is a big state. I would've thought it was too dry. My guess would've been Iowa. Interesting!

  20. Does the farmland including grazing lands? Around here, along the coastal plain, there are lots of pecans (often mixed with grazing animals), blueberries and some peanuts and sweet potatoes (and plenty of shrimp and oysters harvested from our salt water marsh areas).
