The Illinois Agriculture Legislative Roundtable
has identified the need to develop a vision to grow and enhance the
Illinois food and agriculture industry. Illinois Farm Bureau President Philip Nelson, former Illinois
Department of Agriculture Director Chuck Hartke, and University of
Illinois Dean of Agriculture Bob Easter provided oversight to
initiate the effort.
A planning team has been formed that represents various sectors of agribusiness and production agriculture in Illinois. Planning team members represent sectors ranging from agriculture equipment, agriculture finance, biosciences, food and agriculture processing, production agriculture, agriculture energy, specialty agriculture, academia, and state government.
The goal of the vision project is to identify and develop strategies that will enhance and grow the competitiveness of Illinois food and fiber industry.
