Farm and Agribusiness Labor: Spotlight on Georgia’s Produce Industry

Farm labor and immigration are controversial topics. Legislation at the federal and state levels is either pending or is being implemented, and will affect not only the availability of labor for harvesting food horticulture and servicing environmental horticulture as well as the otherwise impacted industries of construction, education, food service, entertainment and tourism.
