Anchoring the master control facilities of ISRO, Hassan is acknowledged as an industrial growth centre along with six developed industrial areas and four special economic zones. Added to this, nearly 70% of the population is engaged in agriculture with a 265-acre food processing SEZ for export-oriented units established in the district. Hassan is a rich producer of spices like cardamom and also produces coconut and coffee. The presence of ZARS, KVK and other technical institutions provides knowledge support to the farmers and infrastructure for intensive R&D. This creates a unique ecosystem for the development of the sector. A 300 MT cattle feed plant further strengthens the district's investment opportunities.
