Your definition of crops excludes cotton. Or is it really grown for food or feed?

Cotton seed is a very useful stockfeed, admittedly it is a by-product of a crop grown for the fibre

The source excludes marijuana - it seems that despite its huge contribution to the US economy, the USDA can't bring itself to admit it exists.

Yeah. The NORML data that everyone quotes are wrong. This has potential to be a future April Fool's quiz question.

Yeah but I read that article that Djilas linked to and it said marijuana was around the same as almonds which according to the article put it at 15th or something. However this quiz lists almonds as first, so I'm a little confused.

No matter what, it stands to reason that marijuana would make tons of money. I know more people who use marijuana then almonds :)

We once used some of the NORML data on this quiz. It because obvious that they were, as one commenter said, "out in space". I'm not making a comment one way or the other about NORML's political mission, only saying that their data doesn't meet the standards of this site.

That's a statement that needs some serious backing up. NORML's oft-reported numbers are probably not even close to accurate. Although its possible that more marijuana is being produced in the state in recent years.

Was nobody else surprised that Minnesota manages to grow so much corn? Who grows it, snowmen?

Here's another one. Would have considered Minnesota too far north for corn (kept trying the southern states: Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi). But then, one of my typos gave me North Dakota, so....

Okay, probably none of you should read this, then, for fear of making your heads explode: Corn: Canada's third most valuable crop.

I'd like to see a yellow box quiz which names a crop and then we type the state which has the highest production. This one was "name the top corn-producing states plus three more." Soybeans, tobacco, rice, etc. would add more interest - for me, at least.
