The Economic Impact of Michigan’s Food and Agriculture Sector

An updated Michigan State University (MSU) study on The Economic Impact of Michigan’s Food and Agriculture Sector shows that the industry contributes an estimated $91.4 billion to Michigan’s economy. That’s an increase of more than 50 percent between 2004 and 2010. The study was conducted by the MSU Product Center Food-Ag-Bio. Economists used the latest available data and applied multipliers from IMPLAN to determine indirect and induced effects of the sector—common standards used by other business sectors.
