Cultivating Agriculture Through Education
Georgia ranks in the top 10 nationally in the production of bell peppers, onions, sweet corn, cabbage and snap beans. In 2018, Georgia vegetable production contributed $2.6 billion to our economy and provided almost 14,000 jobs. Georgia designated the Vidalia onion as the official state vegetable in 1990.
