Infographic showing trade figures for U.S. agricultural exports to China

U.S. agricultural exports to China have grown more than 200 percent over the past decade and China was the United States' second-largest international market in 2015. U.S. farm and food exports to China totaled more than $20.2 billion in 2015, led by soybeans, coarse grains, distillers' grains, hides and skins, and cotton.

The United States and China enjoy a history of collaboration in agriculture that dates back to the 1970s. Over the years, the U.S.-China agricultural relationship has grown and strengthened through high-level fora such as the 2012 Agricultural Symposium and the Joint Commission on Commerce and Trade

The United States' engagement with China has encouraged that country to adhere to international standards and to adopt rational, forward-looking agricultural policies that benefit both U.S. and Chinese producers and consumers.
