Farmers Advocating for Agriculture

Advocacy Projects

In an increasingly urban world, farmers are recognizing the importance of telling their story to consumers. Many farmers have become advocates for agriculture, helping consumers understand the care farm families take to grow grains, livestock food and fiber on their farms and help them understand where their food, fuel and fiber comes from.

The below are agriculture information and advocacy programs supported by the Kansas Corn Commission (KCC). View their sites for more information.
