About 40 percent of the land in the United States is used for agriculture of some form, including livestock grazing. This includes 431.1 million acres of cropland, 396.9 million acres of pasture and 71.5 million acres of forests.
In 1998, the total crop output of the United States was 489,976,030 metric tons with a value of $102.14 billion USD. The largest single crop was corn, which accounted for more than half of the nation’s crop output with 247,882,000 metric tons. The second-largest crop was soybeans with 74,598,000 metric tons. Wheat is third with 69,327,000 metric tons. Other major crops include sugar cane, sugar beets, potatoes, bananas, and coffee.
Tobacco also provides substantial cash returns, although yields are small when compared with many other crops. Total animal output in 1998 was $94.19 billion while forestry products, including timber, totaled $24.68 billion.
