ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Agriculture is already Georgia's top industry, and one Gubernatorial candidate wants to use it to bring more jobs to Georgia.
Georgia produces a wide variety of agricultural products, but Roy Barnes says the state loses revenue when we export only raw goods. Barnes wants to target companies willing to move to Georgia to process the state's ag products here. He says that creates jobs and makes products more valuable when they cross the state line. South Georgia stands to gain if those companies chose Georgia.
"We grow a lot of peanuts if we process and shell them then we should be able to attract confectioner companies there also to keep them from having to ship. We have to build on those and we have to be competitive," said Roy Barnes, (D) Georgia Gubernatorial Candidate.
"We're able to grow switch grass, Miscanthum, Energy Cane, and bio-mass Sorghum we have the pine trees that we can covert the biomass into fuel whether it goes into making ethanol or into making bio-mass for the power plants," said Chip Blalock, Sunbelt Ag Expo Executive Director.
Chip Blalock says bio-mass and bio-energy crops will be a major topic discussed at this years Sunbelt Ag Expo coming up in three weeks.
