South Carolina Department of Agriculture
South Carolina is driven by agriculture. Agribusiness (agriculture + forestry) is the state’s number one industry, accounting for 259,215 jobs and $51.8 billion in annual economic impact. The SC Department of Agriculture’s Office of Agribusiness Development is here to identify and match new agribusiness opportunities in South Carolina. We’re constantly searching for new ways to build on the success of our industry to attract new operations and promote the expansion and/or diversification of our local farms and agribusinesses. Incentive programs are available to qualified new and expanding agribusinesses.
