Arkansas Row Crops & Commercial Horticulture
Arkansas is a major producer of a variety of agronomic crops. Besides being the largest
producer of rice in the United States, it is a major producer of soybeans, corn, cotton, wheat, and grain sorghum. The production of these crops is centered in the eastern third of the state but
there are notable concentrations elsewhere, particularly in the river valleys of the
Arkansas River (central Arkansas) and the Red River (southwest Arkansas).
Commercial and greenhouse production of fruit, vegetable, ornamental, and turfgrass crops are also economically important in many sections of the state.
