Crop production by countries of the world has nothing to do with agricultural product export because such counties as China and India have their internal markets and don’t grow enough to feed their people and livestock plus also export grain or meat.

Just for your information, here are the top five top exporting countries based on most recently available numbers, as reported by Stephen Simpson in an article on the website of Investopedia.


Exports (in billions)

United States










Some of you might be surprised to see the Netherlands so high on the list, but it needs to be recognized that this little country exports high-value production items—flowers, live plants, tomatoes, chilies and other vegetables. Simpson, who is a freelance financial writer and consultant, notes that the Netherlands supply two-thirds of the global total of flowers and live plants.

Simpson also provided a chart of some major commodities and the country supplying the most of each commodity.
