Interim Update on the Economic Impact of Michigan’s Agri-Food and Agri-Energy System


January 31, 2008 - H Christopher Peterson and William A Knudson


In January 2006, the MSU Product Center for Agriculture and Natural Resources published a report entitled “The Economic Impact and Potential of Michigan’s Agri-Food System.” The economic impact numbers had a significant influence on public and private decision makers in regard to the importance of agriculture and food to the state’s economy. Several of these same decision makers have requested that the information published two years ago be updated. This report provides this requested update.
