About half of Alabama
California is the nation’s leading
agricultural state, producing a wide variety of fruits and vegetables including
carrots, lettuce, tomatoes, onions, and broccoli. The state’s most valuable
crops include cotton, grapes, and oranges. California is also a leader in the
production of dairy products and wine.
The processing of farm produce is a major industry in California. But the
state’s economy also benefits from its vast reserves of natural resources such
as petroleum, natural gas, lumber, and cement.
The state manufactures electronic equipment, computers, and transportation
equipment. Southern California forms one of the largest manufacturing regions in
the nation. To the north, “Silicon Valley” has become a center for the
development of computer hardware and software.
One of the largest industries in the state, however, is the motion picture and
television industry. Tourism is another great source of income for California.
Attractions range from Disneyland and other theme parks, to the natural beauty
of the national parks and forests throughout the state.
