Campbell Ave., Tucson)
This presentation will highlight results of an input-output (I-O) modeling exercise measuring the contribution of Arizona's agribusiness system to the state's economy. The agribusiness system includes crop and livestock industries as well as industries that supply and support on-farm production, food and fiber processing industries, and companies that market and distribute agricultural products. Through a combination of direct and multiplier effects, the agribusiness system contributed $23.3 billion in sales and more than 138,000 jobs to Arizona's economy.
