Strategic Plan to Grow Alabama's Agriculture, Agribusiness, Forestry, and Forest Products Industry
Agriculture, forestry, and related industries contribute $70.4 billion—nearly 40 percent—to Alabama’s gross state product. Proponents of a new strategic plan would like to see agriculture’s impact on the state’s economy grow even larger by 2020. If enacted fully, the plan would help create as many as 58,000 new jobs in Alabama and add $7 billion to the state’s economy.
