U.S. agricultural exports reached a record $152.5 billion in 2014, USDA reports. They also accounted for $20% of American ag income.

Maintaining and growing trade will be among the topics at the agency’s annual Agricultural Outlook Forum happening Feb. 19 and Feb. 20 in Washington, D.C.

Power Hour Noon Logo“Our participation in the global economy means that trends in other markets have a large impact here at home,” explains Phil Karsting, administrator, USDA—Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS), in a blog post for the agency. “One of our key goals at USDA (and FAS) is to keep our stakeholders abreast of global trends and the impact they might have on U.S. agriculture.”

The event will include Phil Hogan, European commissioner of agriculture and rural development.
