The Oregon Blueberry Industry and South Korea: An Opportunity for Growth
MetadataShow full item record
The United States has become a sophisticated economy where its chief exports consist primarily of services and advanced technologies. The Industrial Revolution marked the significant turning point when the United States set aside the plow as an agrarian nation and became the industrious force it is today. That is not to say, however, that the plow has gone unused. As the country’s technologies and work force have evolved, so too have its farmers. In the state of Oregon, 15% of all economic activity relates to agriculture; the industry as a whole directly creates 260,000 jobs and adds $22 billion annually to Oregon’s net state product.
