Kansas Agriculture


Valentine, Nebraska

November 14, 2022



Kansas has a strong agricultural tradition that predates its statehood, and agriculture continues to be a significant contributor to the state’s economic well-being.


Today, Kansas is a leader in wheat, grain sorghum and beef production. The dairy sector is rapidly expanding in Kansas and other sectors of animal agriculture are growing as well.


Farmers and ranchers across the state are responding to demand from consumers to raise healthy, wholesome food and are also continuously striving to do better, raising more food using fewer resources.


Agriculture is a critical part of Kansas’ past, and it is a key economic driver in our present, but it also holds great potential for our future.


Increasingly, agricultural resources provide raw materials for a broad range of nonfood products, such as chemicals, fibers, construction materials, lubricants and fuels. Developing and commercializing biobased and bioenergy products provide new and expanded markets for agricultural feedstocks, it reduces our nation’s dependence on petroleum and other imported materials and it helps diversify agriculture. As the world population grows and as demand for animal protein increases, Kansas farmers and ranchers will play a critical role in feeding Kansas families and families around the world.
