Economy of Kansas

Kansas ‘ main economic sectors are industry, agriculture, and mining.

Kansas ranks eighth in the list of “oil” US states. Despite the fact that the cost of oil production is constantly growing due to the need to use more sophisticated technologies, the growth in prices for “black gold” will ensure high profitability of oil production. The state ranks fifth in the United States in terms of explored natural gas deposits and eighth in its production. In addition, the Kansas gas fields provide a significant portion of the world’s helium production.

Rock salt, gypsum, sand, gravel and other minerals used in construction are also mined in the state.

Traditionally, Kansas is considered an agricultural state – the “State of Sunflowers and Wheat.” In terms of agricultural land area, of all US states, Kansas is second only to Texas and Montana.

Kansas is part of the US grain belt, the state occupies one of the first places in America in the production of wheat and corn. In addition, oats, barley, sorghum, sunflowers, soybeans and other crops are grown in Kansas fields.

Kansas has a well-developed livestock industry (cattle, pigs and sheep are grown here), as well as the food industry (including meat and milk processing).

The largest city in Kansas, Wichita, known as the “aviation capital of the world”, is one of the largest centers of the US aerospace industry. Here are the headquarters of such well-known companies that produce aircraft and components for them, such as CessnaSpirit AeroSystemsHawker BeechcraftLearjet; one of the divisions of the Boeing Company.

In addition to the aircraft industry, Kansas produces food, sews shoes and clothes, and produces products for the oil and chemical industries.

With the development of industry, a significant outflow of the Kansas population from rural areas to large cities is associated, which is also characteristic of other once exclusively agricultural states (such as Iowa, for example).
