Louisiana Department of Agriculture and Forestryupdated: December 2015

The Louisiana Department of Agriculture and Forestry is responsible for administering many of the programs and enforcing the regulations that impact every aspect of the state’s agriculture and forestry. At the farm and forest level, these industries contribute $10 billion annually to the state’s economy. When the many support industries are added in, agriculture and forestry touch the lives of everyone in Louisiana, making them critical to the economic growth and prosperity of the state as well as a vital part of our rich cultural heritage.


  • The Department’s mission is to promote, protect and advance agriculture and forestry, and soil and water resources.
  • Our vision is to be a unified and coordinated team that effectively responds to the challenges facing the agricultural and forestry industries, and which pursues each and every opportunity that might provide a benefit to the state and its citizens.
