Gov. Dave Heineman is planning a one-day tour of Nebraska to honor the state's farmers and ranchers.

The governor's office announced Tuesday that Heineman will visit Ainsworth, Alliance and Grand Island on March 16, along with Department of Agriculture director Greg Ibach and Nebraska Farm Bureau representatives.

Heineman proclaimed this week Nebraska Agriculture Week to coincide with the national week that honors farming and ranching.

State officials say farm marketing contributes more than $17 billion annually to Nebraska's economy.

Nebraska is the nation's top producer of red meat, Great Northern beans and popcorn.

It also consistently ranks among the nation's top five producers of corn, soybeans, hay and dry edible beans.
