Agri Arkansas September 2015
When you think of the Arkansas River Valley, agriculture may not be the first thing that comes to mind. Yet the diverse topography, geology, and human history of this area have resulted in a fascinating and thriving agricultural region of our state. This broad valley between the Ouachita Mountains to the south and the Ozark Highlands to the north is home to a wide range of agricultural activities which provide a powerful economic foundation to the region while delivering many types of agricultural products for consumers here and around the world. This month on Agri Arkansas, we capture some of these many facets of agriculture in the River Valley.
