This publication presents two types of ranking information derived from the U.S. Department of Agriculture's cash receipts statistics for the marketing of agricultural commodities within States. One type is the 25 leading commodities for each State and the Nation, ranked according to the estimated value of receipts. The second is the ranking of States by receipts from each of the 25 leading U.S. commodities and by several major commodity groups. The ranking of commodities produced in a State indicates a State's production environment, physical and economic. The ranking of States for a commodity provides information about the location of production and the commodity's relative and regional importance.
