Ag Tech Jobs Grow in Our State's Strong Agriculture Roots
Friday, January 22, 2021

While Indiana already ranks as the 10th largest agriculture state in the nation, we further positioned ourselves as a destination for ag and technology in 2020 with numerous announcements regarding job creation in the ag tech industry, which will add to our already strong agriculture heritage.

Last year, businesses in and outside of Indiana committed plans to create more than 31,300 Hoosier jobs. Overall, 282 companies made investments in our state last year, which only builds on our reputation as a hotbed for innovation.

Our state already ranks third in the nation in the industries of the future. That includes agbioscience, which already contributes $39 billion to our state economy and employs more than 77,000 Hoosiers. Both these numbers continue to climb.

As technology has reshaped the industry, Hoosiers have always adapted. With new businesses growing and starting in our state our agricultural roots grow stronger.
