North Mississippi (WCBI) — Mississippi’s agriculture industry had a good year but a drop in prices takes a toll on some farmers’ pocketbooks.Poultry remains the state’s top commodity for the 19th straight year, bringing in more than two point seven billion dollars. Forestry is worth about one point seven billion dollars to the state. Soybeans and corn followed. Both brought in less than a billion dollars. Corn had a record estimated average yield for the year. However, some prices dropped more than two dollars a bushel.

That lower cost did help poultry producers reduce feed costs.
