Agricultural production and processing in Minnesota plays a huge role in the state’s economy. Minnesota ranks fifth in the nation in agricultural production, with $17 billion in agricultural sales each year. Agricultural production and processing industries generate over $112 billion annually in total economic impact and support more than 431,000 jobs.

Given agriculture’s importance to our state, the Minnesota Dual-Training Pipeline works with agriculture producers to determine their workforce needs and create tools to address those needs as seen below in the list of in-demand occupations in the industry that are well-suited to create dual-training opportunities.
