Agriculture



Agriculture plays a vital role in Indiana’s economy. With more than 15 million acres of farmland, Indiana is a leading producer of corn, soybeans, hogs, poultry, popcorn, and tomato products.

A large percentage of Indiana’s workforce is connected to agriculture, food and forestry and Indiana’s farm, food and forestry products adding billions of dollars to the state economy each year.

Indiana actively promotes the use of biofuels, including ethanol and blended biofuels, derived from corn and soybeans. The state also has adopted a comprehensive clean energy production incentive package to encourage advanced agricultural investment in Indiana.

Indiana’s natural environment and commitment to industry support make it an ideal location for agricultural business opportunities.
