These Two Maps Show Exactly How American Agriculture Actually Works

What is the most lucrative crop in your home state, and where exactly does it go after it’s harvested?

These two questions are the focus of a new article and accompanying maps on the Huffington Post (see this link), which focus on what percentage of crops grown go to animal feed (in terms of agricultural income earned) and what the most lucrative crop is for each state.

As the author Joe Satran noted, most of the states’ top crops go to animal feed, a surprising fact that he had not been aware of.

“For well over half the states, field corn, soybeans or hay was the crop that generated the most cash in 2012, the latest year for which data are available,” Satran notes.

“Though a small share of some of these crops does eventually get eaten by humans, in the form of things like soy lecithin and high-fructose corn syrup, most of it is fed to animals raised for meat or dairy.”

The most lucrative food crops in each state. Via Joe Satran/Huffington Post, USDA and NASS data.

Most corn and soy is genetically engineered, and a large percentage of it goes to animal feed. Hay may also contain genetically engineered alfalfa as well.

It’s also quite interesting to note the major differences between America’s heartland, where meat and dairy (and growing the crops to feed the animals that produce them) are the major focus; and the coastal areas, where fruits and vegetables are the focus.

“With so much collusion between the regulators and the industries they regulate, the laws governing our daily lives have become excessive, unnecessary and downright nonsensical. Keeping the public safe and free is no longer the goal of a number of our lawmakers.”
