Southwest Kansas Agriculture is a tremendous part of the complete Kansas Economy.  All across the U.S., Agriculture is facing hard times.  There are always up and downs in the markets and prices will improve sometime in the future.  The Seward County Community College Ag Program Team decided to put together a meeting to address the present situation, what might be possible to improve things more quickly, and look 20 years into the future.
