Because most people think of Arizona as a big, dusty desert, they are surprised to learn that agriculture is Yuma County's the number one industry - and that Yuma is the winter vegetable capital of the world.
In fact, the agriculture industry in Yuma County represents an annual gross economic return of $3.2 billion, or more than one-third of Arizona's annual total of $9.2 billion.
Several things account for that amazing total: Plentiful sunshine, rich soil, ample labor and high-quality irrigation water.
