Southern Plains Agriculture: 2021 Data and Trends Report

Comprised of just two states with over 160 million acres of farmland, the Southern Plains is a region that is filled with ranges of land, ranches, and family farm operations that collectively contribute nearly $27 billion to the nation’s agricultural output each year. 


Total agricultural production output for the Southern Plains.


Southern Plains is home to the lowest number of migrant farmworkers as many of these farmers depend on their family members to keep their operation thriving. With the lowest number of states, the Southern Plains still holds the third-highest number of acres operated and number of primary farm operators in the nation. With a diversity of farm operations spanning across 126 million acres, Texas has the highest number of operations and is the leading exporter of cotton in the nation. Explore more key trends, challenges, and characteristics of farming in the Southern Plains with statistical insights directly from AgAmerica’s Chief Economist and award-winning professor, Dr. John Penson.
