This study estimates California’s share of selected agricultural commodities in selected markets for 2002. California’s main export market is the United States, but 18 percent of the state’s agricultural production is shipped overseas. We selected the most important foreign markets, analyzed the principal destinations, and generated an estimate of the California share in each market.
