CALS Research, NCSU's insight:

Amid news of a still sputtering U.S. economic recovery, a report released today shows the nation’s agbioscience industries are growing, especially in the South. According to a Battelle study released today, “Impact and Innovation:  Agbioscience in the Southern United States,” agriculture, forestry and fisheries production generates $240 billion in regional economic activity within the Southern region and supports over 2.2 million jobs with labor income totaling $62 billion.

 

The report emphasizes the critical role of the public land-grant university research and extension effort in this economic growth and job creation.
