Indiana presents agriculture roadmap

By | August 10, 2009
In June, Ind. Lt. Gov. Becky Skillman presented the Indiana State Department of Agriculture an agriculture roadmap to serve as a guide in growing the state's agriculture industry over the next four years. State leaders want Indiana to become a global leader in innovation and commercialization of food, fuel and fiber production and plan to accomplish that by focusing on advocacy, economic opportunity and environmental stewardship, as highlighted in the guide.

"We believe that the possibilities for Indiana agriculture are endless and with those possibilities comes progress in the form of jobs, capital investment and wealth for rural Indiana," Skillman said.
