About the White Paper
This report describes the many-sided economic impacts of the manufacturing, distribution, and use of agricultural equipment and machinery. The first section considers recent economic developments within the sector, which showed a relatively quicker recovery from recession compared to the rest of the economy. The second section describes the U.S. economic "footprint" of the industry including the economic supply, income, and jobs created by it. Sections three and four look into industry employment in more detail to provide an occupational and regional perspective. The final section aims to illuminate why the most important economic impact of agricultural equipment is its role in supporting sustained productivity growth in agriculture.
