Livestock production constitutes the largest portion of Nevada's agriculture industry.
What industries are important to Nevada’s economy? Gaming? Yes. Mining? Of course. Shipping and logistics? Certainly. Often overlooked is one of the fastest growing industries in Nevada: agriculture. That’s particularly true in northwestern Nevada where the Truckee, Carson and Walker rivers course down from the mountains with an essential supply of water. The Humboldt River and its tributaries also create pockets of agricultural green across the north of the state.
