Definitions/Notes

Blank cells indicate that there are no data.

Export quantities are in short tons (2000 pounds/ton) and do not include re-exported fertilizers. The export value (exclude U.S. exports to Canada) is the value of exports at the U.S. seaport, airport, or border port of export, based on the transaction price, including inland freight, insurance, and other charges incurred in placing the merchandise alongside the carrier at the U.S. port of exportation. The value, as defined, excludes the cost of loading the merchandise aboard the exporting carrier and also excludes freight, insurance, and any charges or transportation costs beyond the port of exportation. U.S. exports to Canada are valued at the U.S. seaport, airport, or border port of export in the U.S. and include inland freight charges. Export values, in current dollars, are available for 2008 forward.

Import quantities are in short tons. Import values are determined on a customs valuation basis, which excludes U.S. import duties, ocean freight, insurance, and other charges incurred in bringing the merchandise to the United States. The value generally is the current transaction value of imports at the foreign port of export to the United States.

Annual summary data cover January to December.
