Rice

In 2020, the value of U.S. rice exports to the world was $1.9 billion, up 1.5 percent from the prior year. The top three markets, accounting for 40 percent of exports, were Japan at $261 million, Mexico at $245 million, and Haiti at $245 million. U.S. exports to Mexico declined as South American suppliers expanded market share in that primarily paddy market. Countries where the United States has free trade agreements remained significant markets, particularly in the Western Hemisphere.
