New U.S. Trade Internet System Prompts Elimination of Statistical Tables and Charts on U.S. Horticultural Product Trade, Effective with the October 2001 Issue of "World Horticultural Trade and Export Opportunities."
The public now has unlimited access to the most up-to-date data on U.S. exports and imports of agricultural, fishery, and forestry products, to the 10-digit Harmonized System (HS) classification code level. The U.S. Trade Internet System allows users the flexibility to customize their data searches and save their criteria for repeated use. Users can obtain value or volume data for selected HS codes or commodity groupings to track trends going back to 1989.

Given the availability of these statistics on the internet, the Horticultural and Tropical Products Division intends to stop publishing statistical tables and charts on U.S. horticultural product trade, beginning with the October 2001 issue. The following tables and charts will be discontinued: U.S. Horticultural Product and Market Export Summaries; U.S. Exports of Selected Horticultural Products Summary and By Country of Destination; U.S. Imports of Selected Horticultural Products Summary and By Country of Origin. For questions or comments on this decision, please contact Nancy Hirschhorn (202)720-2974.
