“Indiana Agricultural Statistics” publication will have information about Indiana’s entire agricultural industry. This publication satisfies the growing need for accurate, reliable and unbiased information and data. The data is collected from Indiana Farmers, agricultural businesses, USDA Farm Service Agency County Staff, Purdue University County Extension Staff, NASDA Enumerators and others that make this Publication possible. This data is used to provide facts to decision makers that determine the future of Indiana's agricultural industry. The goal for this publication remains unchanged. It is to provide the public with data to help them understand the current situation of Indiana’s farming community and future opportunities. Indiana agriculture continues to be a growing segment of the State’s economy, with Indiana ranked in the top ten nationally for farm receipts. Hoosier farmers should take pride in the fact that even with adverse weather conditions, rising production expenses and prices, Indiana agriculture continues to thrive. Indiana continues to rank near the top nationally in the production of corn, soybeans, popcorn, blueberries, peppermint, spearmint, processing tomatoes, fresh market melons, and vegetables for processing. Indiana livestock producers put our state’s rank at the top for hogs, chickens, eggs, and turkeys.
