Exports account for a large share of the total volume of U.S. production for select product categories. For example, more than 70 percent of the volume of U.S. production of tree nuts (largely almonds) and cotton were exported in 2011, as was more than 50 percent of rice and wheat production. Overall, the export share of U.S. agricultural production was 20 percent based on volume, the average since 2000.
