North Dakota Exports

North Dakota exports total $2B in 2017


The Associated Press - February 22, 2018

BISMARCK, N.D. - The U.S. Commercial Service says that excluding oil, North Dakota exported more than $2 billion worth of products last year, which is a 5.6 percent increase over 2016.

The Bismarck Tribune reports that the state's export growth was led by soybeans and machinery, including bulldozers, tractors, combines and farm implements.

Soybean exports increased by 120 percent between 2016 and 2017. Data from the U.S. Census Bureau show that North Dakota exported almost $53 million worth of soybeans in 2017, compared to $24 million in 2016.

The value of machinery exports grew from almost $687 million to nearly $757 million. Canada, Australia and Ukraine increased their machinery imports from North Dakota last year.

Some exports of crops saw a decrease, including the state's wheat, corn, lentils and dry beans.
