2024 Governor’s Ag and Economic Development Summit

From Gov. Pillen: "We’re revolutionizing our approach to agriculture and economic development in Nebraska. At this summer’s Summit, we’ll unpack this new vision to grow the state. I encourage you to take part. It’s crucial that Nebraska’s key leaders understand where we’re going and how we intend to get there.

In agriculture, we’re rapidly shifting from commodities-based to value-added agriculture. We’re on the cusp of tremendous growth in our nation’s bioeconomy, and Nebraska is perfectly positioned to be the epicenter of it. We have the most sustainable ag supply chain on the planet, and we’re sitting on our pot of gold—the Ogallala Aquifer. The potential is sky high to be a hub for advanced fermentation, biomanufacturing, and production of next-generation biofuels."
