The chief branches of industry of national importance are food processing (56.8 percent of the district’s industrial output), general and transportation machine building (20 percent), light industry, the wood-products industry, and the production of building materials. The district produces a significant amount of surplus agricultural products.

Farmland occupies 61.2 percent of the total area, of which 46.4 percent is arable lands, and 14 percent meadows and pastures. Forests cover 23 percent of Neubrandenburg. Such grain crops as rye, oats, barley, and wheat predominate. More than one-quarter of the arable land is planted with potatoes, sugar beets, and root crops. The raising of hogs, dairy cattle, and sheep is well developed, as is beekeeping. The southwestern part of the district, with its numerous lakes, is a popular resort area.
