The Kansas Department of Agriculture has converted its fifth annual Kansas Summit on Agricultural Growth into a virtual experience. Beginning July 20, farmers, ranchers, agribusiness owners, and other industry professionals across Kansas agriculture are invited to join KDA online as agriculture leaders from across the state network, collaborate, and engage with others from throughout all corners of Kansas agriculture.
“The KDA Ag Growth team is disappointed that we are unable to hold the 2020 Summit in person, but we are excited about the possibilities of what a virtual Summit could entail,” said Secretary of Agriculture Mike Beam. “We have preserved the key elements from past gatherings, including interactive sessions designed to promote action and engagement within specific sectors of the Kansas agriculture community, but instead of all taking place at one time and in one place, they will be spread over several weeks.”
The 2020 Kansas Ag Growth Summit will culminate with a webinar on Thursday, August 20. This event will feature guest speakers as well as share results from the previous breakout sessions.
Details regarding dates and times of the sector sessions, as well as speakers and specific agenda items, can be found on the KDA website at www.agriculture.ks.gov/Summit. The website will continue to be updated as plans are finalized over the next few weeks.

Whether in person or online, KDA remains committed to our purpose — to serve, promote and grow the state’s largest industry. Please join us as we work together to grow smarter, grow stronger, and grow Kansas.
