Grain because almost all farmers do culitvate corn, because its not expensive to grow 10 or 20 corn plants. There is enormous supply for corn grain

The answer would depend on where you are. Coffee is a premium export as are cashew nuts. Shea nuts for cosmetics are in demand in Europe. Dried mango gets a premium price in the UK supermarkets. Cocoa in Ghana and Cote D'Ivoire are the bulk suppliers for the chocolate manufacturers. PKO has huge potential for vegetable oil in the West as the yields are much greater than rape or corn. There is a big push for cassava to be grown commercially in Nigeria at the moment - but personally I don't think there is an international market for it.
