Agriculture drives Kansas economy; county-level agriculture impact data now available

Updated:
MANHATTAN, KANSAS -

The Kansas Department of Agriculture (KDA) has released an interactive map depicting the economic impact of agriculture in each of the 105 counties in Kansas.

“Kansas agriculture contributes to 37 percent of our economy. Each county in our state plays a key role in making that economic percentage as significant as it is,” said Secretary Jackie McClaskey. “Breaking down statistics county-by-county provides a bird's eye view of our state's most prominent industry.”

The map, located on the KDA website, can be used to find agricultural economic facts for each county in the state of Kansas. By interacting with the map and selecting a county, users can see detailed agriculture statistics including farm numbers, crop production and leading agricultural sectors. Data for these facts are pulled directly from National Agriculture Statistics Service's (NASS) Farm Facts. The economic impact data is sourced from IMPLAN.

To find the map, visit: http://agriculture.ks.gov/countystatistics.

For those who are interested in sharing their county's agriculture production via social media, infographics containing county facts can be found at: https://www.flickr.com/photos/kansasagriculture/with/15468342964/. Each graphic gives statistics, unique to the county selected. KDA encourages sharing these facts to provide more agriculture knowledge across the state.

The Kansas Department of Agriculture is committed to providing an environment that enhances and encourages economic growth of the agriculture industry and the Kansas economy.
