The U.S. Department of Agriculture today released data showing how U.S. agriculture could benefit from the successful conclusion of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), a free trade agreement currently under negotiation with 11 other Pacific Rim nations.

USDA lists 22 different commodities or commodity groups and then provides a brief description of what farmers, ranchers, and food processors stand to gain from the tariff reductions  of which the treaty is aimed.

For poultry, USDA’s data shows that U.S. exports of poultry to the TPP countries face tariffs as high as 240 percent. Under the agreement, tariffs across the TPP region will be cut, offering new market access opportunities to U.S. poultry producers and exporters. In 2014, the United States exported almost $3 billion of poultry and poultry products to the TPP region.

USDA also provides a separate list by clicking here that highlights agricultural export data for every state in the union and how each state would be helped by the TPP. For example, click on Georgia, and you will see that Georgia exported $757 million in broiler meat in 2013.  U
