About Arkansas

Arkansas is a landlocked state in the South-Central United States. Arkansas’ name comes from the Osage language and refers to their relatives, the Quapaw Nation. Arkansas is the 29th largest and the 34th most populous state in the country. Little Rock is the most populous city and the state’s capital; it is a hub for transportation, culture, business, and government. Other significant economic and educational centers in the state are the Fayetteville–Springdale–Rogers Metropolitan Area and Fort Smith metropolitan area.

Cotton once was the dominant resource in the region’s agricultural economy; however, it now shares the top spot with rice, soybeans, and wheat. Historically, Arkansas has been a significant rice exporter. Lately, Arkansas has become one of the essential poultry producers in the United States.
