Agriculture and agribusiness— food, fiber, and forestry — account for almost one-fifth of the state’s income and employees. Almost 17 percent, or $71.6 billion, of the $425 billion gross state product is contributed by food, fiber, and forestry industries. These industries account for 638,000 of the state’s 3.8 million employees. This new PDF from N.C. State University economist Mike Walden provides the value-added incomes derived from the state’s agricultural sector for 2010.
