When Ohio was founded, almost 200 years ago, it was mainly an agricultural state. Since then, Ohioans have developed other kinds of business and industry, forcing changes in land use. Today, agriculture accounts for less than 10% of the state's gross product. In 1995, sale of farm products brought in $4.6 billion. And less than 1% of Ohio's total personal income comes from farming --- about $1.4 billion in 1994. Still, for many people agriculture continues to be worth their time and effort, and a fulfilling way of life.
