Agriculture

Overview

Indiana agriculture contributes roughly $31.2B to the Hoosier GDP annually, with approximately 107,500 Hoosier jobs supported by agricultural production, processing and related activities. With more than 14.7 million acres of farmland, Indiana is a leading producer of corn, soybeans, hogs, poultry, popcorn, and tomato products.

With innovations in research and technology, Indiana is helping to fuel a revolution in precision agriculture with companies like Beck's Hybrids, Corteva, Elanco and Solinftec, just to name a few, that are further transforming the Corn Belt to a new Tech Belt that is offering data and research-driven solutions aimed at closing the global food gap.
