North Dakota: Double Harvest || Trust Belt Online

Mark Schill, vice president for research at Praxis and managing editor of NewGeography.com, says while ag is a huge part of the region's economy, it hasn't necessarily resulted in major employment across the food value chain.
Part of the reason is that the kinds of crops grown in North Dakota lend themselves to profitable export (e.g. soybeans and lentils to Asia). But things are changing. "People are looking at the possibility of putting more fertilizer to use," says Schill's research colleague Matt Leiphon as the area's traditional wheat harvest looms. At the same time, North Dakotans are used to having such products present in their communities, and are prone, says Schill, to balance any "recency bias"-driven safety concerns with such factors as job creation, including 2,000 construction jobs and several convoys' worth of trucking gigs. Moreover, a win-win aspect of the Grand Forks deal is the proposed plant's site right next door to the city's wastewater treatment plant, which will supply greywater to NPN. "There's a general sense of being pro-development," says Schill. "It's a positive economic development and good middle-class employment for the region" with jobs in the $75,000 to $80,000 range.

He looked at employment in the industries we normally associate with technology, such as software, engineering and computer programming services. He also analyzed the numbers of workers in other industries who are classified as being in STEM occupations (science, technology, engineering and mathematics-related jobs).
