2022 Kansas Ag Growth Summit

The Kansas Department of Agriculture hosted the seventh annual Kansas Governor's Summit on Agricultural Growth on August 18, 2022, at the Manhattan Conference Center in Manhattan, Kansas. The Summit involves Kansas farmers, ranchers, and agribusinesses working together in a collaborative setting to discuss growing the agriculture industry in Kansas. Thanks to all of the agriculture leaders from across the state who joined us to share ideas about how we can work together to expand opportunities for Kansas agriculture.

Sector Summary: This brief summary of the challenges, opportunities, and/or priorities discussed during the 2022 sector breakout sessions was shared at the end of the Summit event. This is just a snapshot of what was covered; more content will be shared in the future.
