Agriculture is the dominant sector of North Dakota’s economy. Our 31,000 farmers and ranchers lead the nation in the production of more than a dozen important commodities, among them wheat, durum, flax, canola, sunflowers, pulse crops and more.
Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring and the Department staff are committed to promoting a healthy economic, environmental and social climate for agriculture and the rural community through leadership, advocacy, education, regulation and other services. We believe that a strong agricultural economy is vital to the long-term well-being of North Dakota, our country and the world.
