Farm Exports Seen
Food For Industry
U.B. (arm exports con
tribute significantly to the
national economy. For
example, every $1 that is
returned to the farm sector
from exports creates an
additional $1.33 of output in
the rest of the economy -
such as in transportation,
financing and warehousing,
or in supplying farmers with
fertilizer, machinery, and
other goods. Thus, the $4.3
billion increase in U.S.
agricultural exports in 1974
added another $5.7 billion of
income to the rest of the
economy. Economists call
this the “multiplier effect.”
It’s like dropping a pebble in
a pool. Increased output in
one part of the economy
sends a series of widening
ripples throughout the rest of
the economy, according to
the U.S. Department of
Agriculture.
When you add it all up,
farm exports generated
about $47 billion worth of
income in 1974. Of this about
$2O billion came from the
farming sector; the
remaining $27 billion came
from nonagricultural in
dustries. Food processing
alone received nearly $8
billion of income from
agricultural exports. Income
generated in transportation
and warehousing amounted
to $2.7 billion; in wholesaling
and retailing it amounted to
about $2.9 billion.
In 1974 more than 450,000
people had jobs assembling,
processing, and distributing
agricultural exports. Some
examples: 120,000 people

had Jobs in wholesale and
retail trades, 42,000 in food
processing; and 43,000 In
transportation and
warehousing.
As another example:
about 2,000 people in the
agricultural chemical in
dustry have Jobs supplying
farmers with the chemicals
to raise farm products for
export.
Farmers are buying more
products from industry as a
result of increased
agricultural exports. Far
mers are buying more
household appliances, farm
equipment, building sup
plies, and other capital goods
and consumer items. This
increased buying by farmers
as a result of farm exports
spreads more purchasing
power throughout the entire
economy. Fanners spent 12
percent more on tractors in
