Agriculture is the Backbone of the Economy

As mentioned above, agricultural is the main industry in the area. Agricultural contributes millions of dollars to the local economy through livestock and crops. There are more than 800 farms in the city spreading over an area of almost 150,000 acres. Major commodities are milk and dairy products, greenhouse plants and of course, soybean and corn. The Kalamazoo County supplies almost 10 percent of the plants in the United States and therefore, it is rightfully known as Bedding Plant Capital of the World.
