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 produced in Oregon is 951,452. This number represents a dollar value of $951,452,000 (951,452 x 1,000): nine hundred and fifty-one million, four hundred and fifty-two thousand dollars.
The third column of the table lists the percent (part) of the total agricultural value produced in Oregon. For example, greenhouse and nursery products account for 25.8% of Oregon's total agricultural production value. The dollars generated greenhouse and nursery products add up to a little over 1/4 of Oregon's total agricultural production.
