Snapshot of Global Agriculture

March 7, 2012

The following interactive graphic shows today’s top five producers of corn, soybeans, wheat and cotton, as well as USDA’s predictions of the top five exporters of these commodities in 2020.

The map also shows how much countries around the world have increased production of the four key commodities between 2002 and 2012. What a difference a decade can make! Despite the shifts, most analysts remain bullish on U.S. agriculture—while acknowledging that it’s a whole new world, with intertwined global economies.

Click on the title of each graphic to toggle back and forth between Global Crop Production and Projected Exporters.

For the Crop Production map: Scroll over an image to learn more about each country's crop production. Use the arrow keys to move right, left, up and down. Use the + and - buttons to zoom in and out.

For Projected Exporters: Scroll over the photo of each crop to learn USDA's predictions for 2020.
