Nuts & Seeds: United States

This report forecasts to the 2023/2024 season US nuts and seeds demand and production in pounds on a shelled (i.e., without shells) basis and in nominal US dollars valued at the point of first sale (i.e., farmer or processor level). Total demand in pounds and nominal US dollars is segmented by product in terms of: peanuts; almonds; cashews; walnuts; pecans; pistachios; other nuts, consisting of macadamias, hazelnuts, Brazil nuts, and pine nuts; sunflower seeds; and other seeds, consisting of flaxseeds and sesame seeds.

To illustrate historical trends, total demand, total production, and the various segments are provided in annual series from the 2008/2009 to the 2018/2019 season.

Important notes regarding the scope of this report: Sales in value terms may represent in-shell or shelled products, depending on how the items are first sold. For example, almonds are typically first sold after being shelled, while peanuts are sold in-shell. Years with large increases in production result in significant inventories, often leading to price declines. For products not grown commercially in the US – including cashews, Brazil nuts, and pine nuts – demand is valued at import prices. Nuts and seeds imported into the US as part of a trail mix are excluded from demand figures.

Key macroeconomic indicators are also provided with quantified trends. Other various topics, including profiles of pertinent leading companies, are covered in this report. A full outline of report items by page is available in the Table of Contents.
