Canada re-emerges as top destination for U.S. agricultural exports in 2015
Over the past 10 years, U.S. agricultural exports to China have grown over 13 percent annually on average. However, exports to China peaked in 2012 at $25.9 billion, then remained steady for 2 years before dropping by over $4 billion in 2015. Meanwhile, U.S. exports to Canada have been relatively stable, restoring Canada as the largest destination for U.S. agricultural products in 2015. The next largest markets are Mexico, the European Union, and Japan, all longstanding destinations for U.S. agricultural commodities.
