Agri-Stats: Postive Impacts of Agriculture

Go Ag!

On a national level, Ag exports helped lift the US economic growth to an annualized rate of 2.9 percent in the third quarter, from 1.1 percent in the first half of 2016. “Real exports grew 10.0 percent in the third quarter, their fastest quarterly growth since 2013.”

This is positive evidence that a vibrant agricultural sector is necessary for, and contributes to, a sound U.S. economy.
