This study describes the contribution of the agriculture and forestry industries to Virginia’s
economy. The study relies on both published and unpublished data as well as literature that
address trends in the agriculture and forestry industries. It makes use of input-output analysis
to identify agriculture and forestry backward and forward linkages to other industries and institutions.
It also provides separate estimates of agriculture and forestry impacts, impacts by industry
groupings arranged by level of dependency on raw materials originating within the state, and impacts by region.
