Nearly 11,000 acres of soybeans, over 3,200 acres of rice, 1,600 acres of grain sorghum and 370 acres of wheat account for the rest of the field crop total. Other major commodities include aquaculture and wildlife valued at $24 million and animal enterprises including horses and cattle estimated at 13.6 million.
