It is bordered by the Tennessee River on the north, Franklin County on the south, Lawrence County on the east and Mississippi on the west. The population is 54,428.

Agriculture brings more than $60 million to the county each year. Major sustainable ag commodties are poultry production, cotton, corn, soybeans and beef cattle. Other ag programs include forestry and the urban/rural horticulture industry.

The Colbert County Extension Office has two full-time agents, one regional extension agent, one full-time and one part-time multi-county urban agents.
