Agriculture remains as one of the top industries in Mississippi, contributing $6.2 billion dollars to the economy annually according to the latest Census of Agriculture. The state is made up of several regions with varied landscapes, each with their own unique characteristics that allow farmers to produce a similarly varied array of crops. The high-yielding Delta region in particular, made up of rich-alluvial soil deposits, has been known as one of the highest producing regions in the world for Cotton and other cash crops. Farmland accounts for 35% of Mississippi’s total land area with 34,988 farms spread across more than 10.4 million acres.
