Our Vision

Productive Farming


Production of food, feed, fiber, fuel, and other bio-products are the core functions of farming and important goals of Green Lands Blue Waters.


The crops we promote provide for every sort of farm product expected from our region – grain, forage, energy, fiber, fruit, vegetables, oils, and more. Farmers experienced with growing the greater variety of crops we promote, and supported by forward-looking agricultural research programs and agribusinesses, will be well positioned to provide for our future needs.
