  • Economic Impact Highlights

Agriculture, forestry, and related industries contributed $70.4 billion to Alabama's economy in 2010, accounting for almost 40 percent of its GDP and employing 580,295 people — 22 percent of the state's workforce. This economic sector is also a critical and, in many cases, indispensable component of the economies of Alabama's 67 counties. This series of reports, the result of a collaborative effort of the Alabama Agribusiness Council, the Alabama Cooperative Extension System, Auburn University, and other businesses and organizations, is a compilation of agricultural and forestry economic data collected from all of Alabama's counties.

In addition to providing a detailed and comprehensive picture of the impact of agriculture and forestry in each of these counties, the series is intended to provide county leaders and other policy makers with a strong basis for making economic decisions in the future.
