Economy[edit source | edit]

The economy of Abbalagere consists primarily of agriculture. Farmers in this area grow areca nut, plantation crops, paddy, and maize. Many villagers commute daily to the nearby city of Shimoga.

Abbalagere was once known for tobacco production. The Central Tobacco market yard has been operated in the village for many years. However, in 2006-2007, former Prime Minister and Member of Parliament of Hassan, H. D. Deve Gowda (a member of the Central Tobacco board) shifted the market to his district Hassan (Ramanathapuram). After the relocation, all farmers residing in Shimoga taluk, Chikmagalur, and Davangere left the tobacco industry.
