    ¿Alguien me puede ayudar con esta frase? Especificamente, lo de "accounts for".

    Although agricultural production accounts for only 9% of the gross domestic product (GDP), agricultural-related products make up more than half of the country's exports.

    Aquí va mi intento:

    Aunque la producción agrícola sólo representa el 9% de PIB, productos relacionados con la agricultura ...... más de la mitad de las exportaciones del país.

    I thought I'd do better, but I just have no idea what to do with "accounts for" and "make up".
