Cotton, fruits/nuts, peanut, and vegetable production have traditionally been the largest source of crop farm gate receipts for Georgia and other Southern states. Recent rankings for Georgia commodities by farm gate value show swings up and down for cotton and peanut in the last decade. Since 2007 acreage has shifted to more grains and soybeans. Vegetables have declined recently and fruits and nuts grown. Forces that led to change and how the shifts have occurred will be examined. A trend outlook will also be given.
