This week Nevada County's Agricultural Commissioner Chris DeNijs presented the 2018 Nevada County Annual Crop and Livestock Report to the Board of Supervisors. This annual report helps gauge the economic health and diversity of the agricultural community here in Nevada County. 

In 2018, the gross value of agricultural commodities in Nevada County was $25,609,200. This represents an overall increase of 7.3% from 2017. Noteworthy gains occurred in Fruit & Nut Crops (24.2%), Timber products (20.6%), and Nursery & Flower Products (14.5%). After three years of declines, our livestock Industry, which is the county's highest valued commodity, experienced a 3.7% gain.

This year the report focuses on multiplier effects of Nevada County Agriculture. The report shows how agricultural business, suppliers, and their employees spent an estimated $7.7 million in the county economy. When combined with the farm production value, this brought agriculture's total 2018 economic contribution to $33,356,991
