The Economic Research Service (ERA) studied the export share of different U.S. commodities between 2013 and 2015 and the percentages varied greatly.

According to AgWeb, U.S. agricultural exports are a big part of our economy with $134.9 billion dollars’ of food and fiber shipped overseas. Cotton is leading, with 75 percent of its crop being exported each year. The U.S. almond crop, which represents nearly 80 percent of the entire world’s supply, exports rough two-thirds of its crop, while approximately half of the soybean and wheat crops get exported. Pork exports are sitting at 20 percent, corn at 15 percent and beef rounding out the pack with exports around 10 percent.
