Other industries include metallurgy (steel-rolling and cast-iron production in Salgótarján and the only ferrosilicon plant in the Hungarian People’s Republic, in Zagyvaróna), building materials, machine building (production of mining equipment in Zagyvapálfalva and of agricultural machinery in Salgótarján). Plowlands account for 48 percent of the county’s area; forests, for 37 percent. Wheat, Indian corn, rye, barley, and potatoes are planted in the valleys and on the hill slopes.
