Some surprising results! Keep in mind that this is in dollar value. So maybe Netherlands is a net importer of calories, but a net exporter of expensive processed foods. I'm not sure. India is a surprise as well due to their massive population.

Are flowers considered agricultural products? Netherlands has quite a reputation at selling flowers.

flowers, cheese and veggies. Like every second tomato I get in the supermarket (western Germany, near to the dutch border) is from the netherlands. Same goes for bell peppers and cucumbers. They have gigantic greenhouses in all of the country

And eggs might be counted too! There's now an ongoing egg scandal in the Netherlands which also hit Germany, Belgium and the UK, because Dutch 'bad' eggs were exported to them. Actually, when you only count exports, the Netherlands is the second biggest agri and food exporter in the world, only behind the USA and ahead of Germany, Brazil and China. Exports totalled € 85 billion in 2016, of which only 24 billion comprised products that were imported and processed in the Netherlands. There are lots of very fertile polders, and there is very advanced agricultural knowledge (Wageningen might be the best agriculture university in the world). See https://www.government.nl/latest/news/2017/01/20/agri-food-exports-achieve-record-high-in-2016 - it's a Dutch gov site, so it's not really an independent source, but I guess they didn't make up the numbers. :)

Actually, Netherlands has the most productive agriculture in the world. For a very small country, they produce an amazing amount of food as a result of a revolution in productivity. There was a recent article in National Geographic about all this.

I don't know about definition of agricultural products, but flowers definitely are, while processed food isn't necessarily included.

I think an important criteria for something being an 'agricultural' product is its ability to be consumed. When's the last time you had flowers for breakfast? XD

Netherlands isn't there because of its biggest harbour in western Europe? If the calculation is based on the amount of products value and not the origin of them, maybe this could explain why the Netherlands is so high in this ranking.

What's most surprising is that Spain is not on this list.

Also New Zealand, but for a different reason. New Zealand has $3100 per person, and $55 000 per km2. Ireland has $900 per person, and $64 000 per km2.

With so much winter fruit coming into the US from Chile, I was surprised it wasn't on the list.
