Other states that grow a large percent of the nation's agriculture include Texas, Iowa, Kansas, Nebraska, and Arkansas. Texas, for example, produces the most cattle; Iowa raises the most hogs and grows the most corn; and North Dakota and Kansas routinely alternate as the biggest wheat grower, followed by Kansas.
