The Economic Impacts of CT Agriculture

In anticipation of the March 22nd workshop on Manchester's Agricultural Future, check out this UConn study on the economic impacts of agriculture in Connecticut. The study found that:
  • The total impact of agriculture on the Connecticut economy is up to $3.5 billion, including $1.7 billion in value added.
  • Agriculture generates approximately 20,000 jobs statewide.
  • The Connecticut agriculture industry generates about $1,000 in sales per CT resident.
