The value of US agricultural exports averaged $140 billion a year in recent years, while imports averaged $100 billion. US agricultural exports are about 10 percent of total US exports, and agricultural imports are five percent of total imports.
The US exported fresh and processed fruits and vegetables worth $6.1 billion in 2015 and imported fruits and vegetables worth $17.6 billion, for a deficit of $11 billion. About half of the produce trade deficit is due to imports of bananas and fresh tomatoes and other vegetables. In the 1970s, the US had a trade surplus in fruit and vegetable trade.
