North Dakota isn’t only known for its scenic views, great plains, natural wildlife, and magnificent grassland, but also for the impressive production of corn (grain, pure, silage), spring wheat, winter wheat, durum wheat, soybeans, canola, hay, hay and haylage, potatoes, sunflowers, barley, oats, lentils, flaxseed, peas, rye, sugar beets, and chickpeas.
The picturesque Midwestern state is home to a whopping 26,100 farms and ranches operated on 39.3 million acres of land—which is about 90 percent of the total land area of North Dakota. In 2019, the field crops alone contributed almost $8.4 billion to the state’s economy. Corn production topped the list with a value of nearly $1.7 billion (rounded off), and wheat and soybean followed with a production value of about $1.42 billion and $1.41 billion, respectively.
Besides the impressive production of crops, North Dakota doesn’t lag when it comes to livestock inventories either. In 2019, the inventory count for cattle and calves totaled 1.83 million head, 142,000 head for all hogs and pigs, and 72,000 head for all sheep and lamb inventory in North Dakota. Looking at these numbers for livestock and crop production, it wouldn’t be inaccurate to call it one of the United States’ biggest agricultural hubs.
