Growers do not have control over most input costs, such as fuel, fertilizers, and packaging, nor can they significantly affect market prices. Agriculture is the number one contributor to the county’s economy and through the multiplier effect, contributes a total of $2.8 billion to the local economy and provides 25,370 jobs.
