Commerce and industry

Primarily an agricultural province, Agusan del Norte is the region's leading rice producer after Bukidnon. Other major crops include corn, vegetables, coconuts and bananas. The province continues to be a major timber, lumber producer and plywood plants. Most of them operate in Butuan City. Minor licensees concentrate on gathering rattan. Butuan City is the commercial and transportation center of the Agusan Valley.

Agusan's Capital Butuan City

Butuan City is the city of antiques and archaeological finds. The city of Balanghais. The pre-historic city by the river. Archaeologically, Butuan City was a big flourishing settlement and trade center in Southeast Asia 700 B.C., whose people were highly civilized natives. The discovery of nine balanghais in Libertad is a unique phenomenon all over the world, and has no parallel in Southeast Asian Prehistoric Archaelogy.
