Imports of agricultural products into the United States represent a significant share of many foods consumed in the United States today. Increased income, better transportation, and global food supply chains support vast trade in agricultural products. In 2006, the United States imported more than $64 billion worth of agricultural products. Beverages, tropical products, fruits, and vegetables led the import value (Dohlman and Gehlhar, 2007).
