Agriculture is a vital economic force in North Dakota. About 90 percent of the state’s land is used for agriculture, totaling 40 million acres devoted to farming and ranching.
Additionally, 24 percent of the state’s population is employed in the agricultural sector alone.
North Dakota’s sub-humid continental climate is perfect for producing livestock and small grains, helping make it a top producer of dry edible beans, navy and pinto beans, canola, flaxseed, and honey. It’s also a top producer of durum and spring wheat – when you eat spaghetti, chances are it contains North Dakota wheat.
