    04 | Georgia's Greatest Powerhouse: Agriculture

    If there's one area we all know Georgia excels in, it's agriculture. Producing $69.4 billion in revenue every year and dedicating almost 10 million acres of land to production, it's no surprise that we are the leading producers of peanuts, blueberries, onions, and of course, peaches. Featuring Cassie Ann Kiggen (Chief Communications Officer of the UGA College of Agricultural & Environmental Sciences) and Dr. Laura Perry Johnson (Associate Dean of Extension for the UGA College of Agriculture & Environmental Sciences), this episode explores the vast agricultural industry immersed throughout the state and shows why the self-proclaimed peach state should be known for so much more.
