Linking Agriculture for Networking & Development (LAND)

The Kentucky Department of Agriculture and the Kentucky Association of Manufacturers have aligned to leverage agricultural resources of the Commonwealth with the state’s robust manufacturing industry.  This forum is intended to bolster existing collaboration between agriculture and manufacturing to develop and expand upon the existing supply chain for agricultural product to the manufacturing sector.  These opportunities will be highlighted in a series of regional meetings strategically selected to focus on the ability to best blend synergies within each region.  The LAND (Linking Agriculture for Networking & Development) forums are intended for manufacturers, agricultural leaders, economic development professionals, local and state officials, academia, and other stakeholders.
