The top agricultural commodities in the parish are rice, soybeans, crawfish, sugarcane and beef cattle. 

Agriculture & Natural Resources

Agricultural production is the largest economic generator in Jeff Davis Parish. Profitability in agriculture has become more difficult to achieve due to increased cost of production, greater pest pressure and increased regulatory requirements. In order to help producers achieve fiscally and environmentally efficient production, the LSU AgCenter presents the latest research-based recommendations through electronic newsletters, news articles, result demonstrations, farm research plots, field days, educational clinics, mass media and farm visits. Emphasis is in the major commodities of rice, soybean, sugarcane, grain, commercial turf and cattle production. Consumer horticulture (gardens, ornamentals and turf) is another major educational area.
