Agriculture and agribusiness make up the strongest industry in the state of Georgia. In 2012, agriculture had a $72 billion economic impact on Georgia and created more than 359,000 jobs. In nearly two-thirds of the 159 counties in Georgia, food and fiber production and directly related businesses represent the largest or second largest segment of all goods and services produced. 1 in 7 jobs in Georgia are related to the agriculture industry.
Georgia’s history is agriculture, but our future is agriculture as well. GeorgiaAg.com is a tool for students, teachers and all other interested parties to learn more about the agriculture industry, find accurate agricultural statistics for many different commodities or maybe just be reminded of the economic engine that continues to move Georgia forward.
