The unique composition of soils in northeast Louisiana led to the creation of the Macon Ridge Research Station more than 50 years ago. Research there has helped producers overcome the difficulties of producing crops on the Macon Ridge soils. Near Winnsboro on 815 acres, the station focuses on entomology, plant pathology, forage production for cattle and weed science. Agriculture is the area's main industry with nearly 500,000 acres of crops grown in the region.
