Agriculture plays a vital role in Georgia's rural communities, and at Georgia's Rural Center, we are gearing up to celebrate Georgia Ag Week, March 18-22!
In Georgia, broilers, cotton, eggs, peanuts and timber are the top five commodities produced. Together, these commodities brought in $7.65 billion in 2017. As a whole, Georgia agriculture contributed $73.7 billion to the state's economy.
Georgia's farmers also lead the US in the production of broilers, hatching eggs, peanuts and pecans.
