The numbers listed for "Value ($1,000)" represent the value of the product or commodity in thousands of dollars. For example, a number listed as 450,000 (four hundred and fifty thousand) equates to an actual value of $450,000,000 (four hundred and fifty million).

Note: Data are not collected by the Economic Research Service in surveys for some minor commodities and for some minor producing states for commodities that are surveyed. This is why percentages do not always add up to 100% and all states that produce a product may not be listed.
