Wheat

In 2020, the value of U.S. wheat exports to the world reached $6.3 billion, up 1 percent from 2019 due to increased demand from China. The top three markets, accounting for 36 percent of sales, were the Philippines at $826 million, Mexico at $778 million, and Japan at $635 million. Increased demand from China offset stronger competition from Russia and Canada in key markets including Nigeria.
