Learn > Agriculture Impact

The sales and economic contribution of production agriculture has declined slightly in recent years. Weather and world-wide supply and demand conditions result in highly volatile agricultural production and prices, complicating sales and contribution predictions. Most crops were harvested when Hurricane Ike hit the study area. Thus, 2008 sales were largely unaffected. Hurricane-induced changes to soil conditions can continue to affect crop production for several years. The economic contribution of production agriculture was 9 percent below predictions for 2009.
