2023 State of Ag Report to Be Released on National Ag Day

    March 10th, 2023

    Mankato, MN – You’re invited to join GreenSeam, Governor Walz and Commissioner Petersen, MDA State of Ag Address (invited) and other key leaders on National Ag Day to be one of the first to view the 2023 State of Agriculture Report. The Report will be released on Tuesday, March 21, at Minnesota State University, Mankato Strategic Partnerships Center 424 N Riverfront Dr, Mankato, MN 56001 from 1:30 pm – 4:30 pm. Second Floor Hubbard Building. A live stream will be available on GreenSeam’s Facebook page.

    The State of Ag Report is a result of a comprehensive survey and a series of focus groups of Minnesota’s agribusinesses and related industries. It reveals the perceptions, directions and opinions on the economy and other major issues impacting businesses in the agriculture industry and places emphasis on education, as well as talent attraction and retention. GreenSeam has conducted the State of Ag report for the third year in a row to better understand how businesses, organizations, and leaders view opportunities and challenges facing agriculture in Minnesota. These valuable findings enable GreenSeam to better understand, serve, and support the workforce, businesses, organizations, and communities we call home.
