It’s natural for agribusiness professionals to encounter unpredictability and resource constraints, both of which challenge growth. Everything from weather to supplies to policies can greatly affect the viability of an agribusiness operation. This is especially true when talent and housing are in short supply, which creates inefficiencies, increases the cost and complexity of doing business, and makes it more daunting to use available information. There’s no question it’s easy for those in the know to constantly feel like their potential is always compromised. Or, perhaps the idea of pursuing growth initiatives beyond the here and now feels overwhelming.
With KEDCo’s agribusiness support, our mission to convene, build and show available economic growth resources provides an alternative that helps you work with more confidence, efficiency, and effectiveness. This is why we regularly meet with local agribusiness professional to understand their challenges. It’s also the reason we honor the sensitivity of every situation—big and small—through private one-on-one meetings. At the same time, our ability to connect with other area agribusiness leaders is also important, which is why we host a bi-monthly agribusiness roundtable. We are also the first community to invest in AgriNovus, which helps to bring resources and visibility to our county and beyond. The more we understand and navigate your challenges together, the more we increase awareness, facilitate solutions, and do so beyond Kosciusko County.
