Georgia’s fertile soil and favorable climate support production of a wide variety of high‐value agricultural products including grapes and wine, nuts (hazelnuts, almonds, walnuts, and chestnuts), citrus fruits, apples, peaches, and apricots.

For Georgia, agriculture remains an important sector in terms of GDP contribution. In 2016, agriculture accounted for 12.4 percent of GDP.
