An interregional input-output model of the Monroe, Louisiana, Functional economic area constructed with IMPLAN is used to assess economic linkages between a mall urban core and a surrounding rural periphery. The contribution of agriculture, especially in the rural periphery, to the urban core (Ouachita parish) economy is demonstrated. Also assessed is the possibility of using the core's food processing sector to facilitate periphery economic growth. While results demonstrated stronger rural-urban linkages than have been found in other regions, growth in the urban food processing industry as currently structured, did not imply rapid growth in the periphery.
