    January 26th, 2023

    Mankato, MN – GreenSeam and Minnesota State University of Mankato, along with our partners and collaborators, is seeking a glimpse of how businesses, organizations, and leaders view the opportunities and challenges facing agriculture in Minnesota in 2023 and beyond. We have developed the State of Ag survey to study ways to better understand, serve, and support the workforce, businesses, organizations, and the communities we call home. In this study, you will be asked to complete an online State of Ag survey.

    “The State of Ag survey is a valuable tool for gaining insight into the current state of agriculture in Minnesota. By asking stakeholders about their status and insights, the survey provides a comprehensive understanding of the industry and any challenges it may be facing. As an expert professor, I was involved in the collaboration between the Minnesota State University of Mankato, GreenSeam and the Southern Minnesota Center of Excellence in creating and preparing the survey for the public. This collaboration ensured that the survey was thorough and accurate, and that the information collected would be useful for making informed decisions about the future of Minnesota’s agriculture and food industry. Overall, the State of Ag survey is an important tool for understanding the current state of the industry and identifying areas for improvement.” Dr. Maria Kalyvaki, Ph.D., M.B.A., M.Ed. Assistant Professor Department of Marketing and International Business | College of Business | Minnesota State University, Mankato
