- U.S. Horticultural Product Exports
Holding Steady Through First Half of FY 2000
- U.S. horticultural product exports during
the first 6 months (October-March) of fiscal year (FY)
2000 totaled $5.2 billion, unchanged from the same period
last year. Sales to Canada, the largest U.S.
horticultural export market, continue strong, with
shipments during October-March valued at $1.5 billion, up
4 percent from the same period the previous year. Mexico
is now the fourth largest market for horticultural
exports and this trend will likely continue in FY 2000.
Through the first half of FY 2000, U.S. exports of
horticultural products to Mexico were valued at $434
million, up more than 30 percent from the same period
last year. However, exports to Japan during the
October-March period of FY 2000 were valued at $840
million, unchanged from the same period last year.
