A new report from Indiana University's Kelley School of Business says agricultural industries contributed $37.9 billion to Indiana's economy in 2011. "Agriculture's Bounty: The Economic Contribution of Agriculture," produced by the Indiana Business Research Center, also said that the state's agricultural output supports nearly 190,000 Hoosier jobs. Of those jobs, 103,000 are directly involved in crop production and processing. Approximately 83 percent of Indiana's geography -- 19.4 million acres -- is devoted to farming or forests.
