As “the breadbasket of America,” Kansas is more than just the top wheat producer in the U.S. It’s a leading producer of corn, sorghum, soybeans and other major commodity crops sold globally. In the center of it all is the Greater Manhattan region, home to numerous organizations dedicated to advancing the fields of crop science, grain science and milling. Position your agricultural company for success by establishing a presence in the heart of it all — where the nation’s grain production and innovation meet.
