Considered “The Crossroads of America,” real estate and Indiana acreage covers 36,420 square miles of variable terrain. Because of 794,994 acres of highly productive Miami soils and other prime farmland soils, Indiana farmers rank high nationally for agricultural production. Corn, soybeans, and winter wheat grow well in the flat areas of Miami soils and the steeper areas serve well as pasture, hay land, or woodland.
Agriculture plays a vital role in the economic stability of Indiana. Agriculture is a large and diverse industry with 60,938 farms containing 15.2 million acres of Indiana farmland. The average Indiana acreage or farm size is 240 acres. In 2009, Indiana ranked No. 8 in the nation with $7.1 billion in crop sales and No. 19 for livestock with $2.9 billion in sales.
Major agricultural outputs from Indiana farmlands are corn, soybeans, wheat, tomatoes, peppermint, and spearmint. Other major industries include manufacturing, mining coal and limestone, and steel.
