Agribusiness and Forestry

Crop and livestock production, timber production, and businesses that support those enterprises make up a significant component of Alcorn County’s economy. About 540 farms totaling nearly 94,000 acres produce a wide range of products.

Timber is the number one commodity produced, followed by corn and soybeans. In 2009, cash receipts from production of soybeans, corn, cotton, and other crops totaled $15.4 million; from timber, $7 million; and from cattle and calves, $1.8 million.

The Alliance is actively involved with the county’s agricultural industry. It supports the annual Alliance Ag/Forestry Tour that showcases the variety of agricultural operations in the county, and it participates in the heavily attended annual Wildlife Tasting Supper. The Alliance also offers four agricultural scholarships each year to graduating students enrolling in college in a field related to agriculture.
