The fact is that the United States is the world’s largest exporter of rice. The U.S. exports more rice than any country in the world, and this figure continues to rise.
But the problem in this story of ours is that the United States exports so much rice it is literally poisoning our planet. The U.S. is the world’s largest food importer and the reason why is because of the insane amount of rice that it takes to produce each metric ton of food. In fact, the United States accounts for more than 80% of the world’s rice production and that’s more than any other country.
The reason rice is so important to the U.S. is because it is the primary source of animal feed for Americans. That is to say, Americans are what it is, the biggest consumers of rice, and the only country where they don’t eat it is the United States. In a perfect world, every country would be self sufficient in rice and the only place that it doesn’t exist would be the United States, but this isn’t a perfect world.
As a nation, the United States is the biggest exporter of rice in the world. Even though the U.S. is the biggest consumer of rice, its consumption is actually declining. This is a good thing because it means there are more farmers in the country, and it means we have more animals to eat. The United States is also the largest exporter of rice to India.
India is a big rice producer also. It is also India’s largest grain exporter. The country’s grain exports are one of the biggest sources of foreign exchange for India.
India is becoming more and more important to the U.S. economy. A new study by the McKinsey & Company found that if the U.S. kept the same level of imports and exports, the country’s GDP would be $5.9 trillion in 2030, or $22,000,000,000. But if the U.S. increased the exports and imports by 5%, the amount added to GDP would increase to $8.
According to the study, by 2030, the U.S. would have to pay a higher percentage of the cost of imports and exports to the rest of the world to keep India in the top 10 countries in terms of trade. Even if India keeps what she has and keeps her trade barriers to the rest of the world low, the study states that China would take the top spot. Other countries like the Philippines, Vietnam, and Bangladesh are all on the way to surpassing India.
The countries exporting the most rice are of course India, China, the Philippines, and Vietnam, but there are other countries out there like the United States and South Korea that are also exporting rice. The U.S. exports around $7 billion worth a year, and South Korea $6.5 billion.
The U.S. has been on a roll of exporting rice for over a century now. The main reason for this is the fact that China is the world’s largest consumer of rice, and the U.S. has to have the rice it’s used to get from the farmers. But if the U.S. were to export more rice, the result would undoubtedly be a spike in Chinese demand for American rice.
