NV Achieves Food, Agriculture Exports Milestone

Posted: Updated:

RENO, Nev. (AP) -- The Nevada Agriculture Department says the state has achieved an important business milestone.

For the first time in state history, Nevada agriculture and food exports have surpassed the $100 million mark.

The agency reported total agriculture and food exports of $114.3 million in 2012, up 11.8 percent from 2011.

Total Nevada exports of $10.2 billion last year broke the state record of $10 billion and represented a 27.7 percent increase over 2011.

Food and agriculture products are Nevada's eighth largest export category, followed by such products as precious metals and stones, electrical machinery, ores, games and sporting equipment.

Eighty-nine percent of food and agriculture exports fall within eight categories, including edible preparations, beverages and spirits, prepared cereals, flour and starches, cocoa and cocoa preparations, and edible and prepared vegetables.
