Mexico

Mexico is the United States’ third-largest agricultural export market. U.S. sales of food and farm products to Mexico totaled a record $19.5 billion in fiscal year 2014, accounting for nearly 13 percent of all U.S. agricultural exports. Top products included corn, soybeans, dairy, pork, poultry and beef.

Under the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), Mexico and the United States have eliminated all tariffs and quantitative restrictions on agricultural goods and have strengthened scientific ties to eradicate diseases and pests, conduct research and enhance conservation.
