The Great State: Nevada

Nevada has a significant amount of desert and mountainous land. And while Nevada is the most urban state, agriculture is still a part of the state's income. Nevada is known for its production of potatoes, barley, alfalfa, rye, oats, wheat vegetables, mint, garlic and onions, and fruits. But its leading ag industry is livestock production like cows, calves, sheep and hogs. And if you visit Nevada, be sure to check out our review of the crazy city of Las Vegas!
