Agriculture

Oklahoma is one of the most agriculturally diverse states in the nation.

Oklahoma is one of the most agriculturally diverse states in the nation. In terms of economic effect, agriculture trails only oil and gas production in Oklahoma. The state is a national leader in the production of cattle, wheat, pecans, and peanuts. Poultry and eggs also have become major agricultural commodities; state’s swine industry has experienced significant growth in recent years. In addition, the production of sorghum, corn, soybeans, cotton, hay, and timber brings hundreds of millions of dollars into the state economy each year. 

• The OSU Division of Agriculture Sciences and Natural Resources has taken a leadership role in helping Oklahomans to diversify the economic foundation of their communities and counties. Oklahoma and the world are moving toward a time where agriculture is not only the source of food, feed, fiber, aesthetic plants, and other traditional products, but also the primary source for energy, materials, and chemicals for industry, pharmaceuticals, and nontraditional uses.
