Maryland Economy

While there is little agricultural land in densely populated Maryland, the state’s farms grow corn, peas, tomatoes, cucumbers, melons, watermelons, and tobacco on some farms in the south. Animal husbandry is well developed, especially dairy. Poultry farming is widespread in southeastern Maryland, and one of the largest broiler producers in the United States, Perdue Farms, is headquartered here.

In the Chesapeake Bay (and on the Atlantic coast of Maryland), fishing and seafood are well developed, primarily blue crabs and oysters.

Maryland is one of the largest centers of education and science in the United States, primarily in the fields of biology and medicine. Founded in the 19th century, the Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore is deservedly considered the best hospital in the United States of America, and Johns Hopkins University is one of the best medical research centers in the world. In addition, the federal National Institutes of Health, the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, the Craig Institute and the Human Genome Sciences company and other equally well-known organizations are operating in Maryland.

Tourism is a very important industry in Maryland. The significant diversity of Maryland’s nature, sometimes called “America in Miniature”, attracts hikers to the picturesque Appalachians, water sports fans to the Chesapeake Bay, and those who want to sunbathe on ocean beaches to the Ocean City resort. No less interesting are the historical monuments of the state (including the famous Fort McHenry in Baltimore, whose defense in 1814 inspired Francis Scott Key to compose a poem that became the US anthem).
