Escambia may be considered an urban county by many, but there are more than 30,000 acres dedicated to production agriculture. Row crops center around cotton and peanuts, but soybean, corn, and other small grains are not an uncommon. Thousands of acres are managed for forage and hay for livestock. Much of rural Escambia County is covered by timberland, both privately and publicly owned. UF/IFAS Extension can help citizens with issues important to our landowners looking to better utilize their holdings.
