This table offers a more complete view of the most important agricultural products of Hawai`i.
Hawai`i's most valuable products fall into the crops category where over 80% of the state's agricultural revenue is generated.
Mushrooms and wool are among the top 20 commodities produced in Hawai`i but, because specific data are not available, it is not known how they rank among the others.
The 2004 table above contains information about Hawai`i agricultural production provided by the Economic Research Service at the United States Department of Agriculture.
The first column of the table lists the product (commodity).
The second column of the table lists a number representing the dollar value of the product. This number is not the dollar value of the product. This number represents the dollar value of the product in thousands of dollars. For example, the number listed for the value of greenhouse and nursery products are 94,525. This number represents a dollar value of $94,525,000 (94,525 x 1,000): ninety-four million, five hundred and twenty-five thousand dollars.
The third column of the table lists the percent (part) of the total agricultural value produced in Hawai`i. For example, greenhouse and nursery products produced in Hawai`i account for 17.2% of the state's total agricultural production value. The dollars generated by the production of greenhouse and nursery products amount to a little over 1/6 of Hawai`i's total agricultural production.
