Agribusiness: Making Kentucky the Ag Tech Capital of the U.S.
4 Aug 2022
Building on its history of innovation in agriculture and the success of its signature industries, Kentucky is making strides toward becoming the agricultural technology capital of the United States.
Kentucky is uniquely positioned to attract, develop and sustain agtech companies. Its dominance in the equine industry, the booming bourbon sector, genetic progress in poultry and sustainability advancements in no-till farming make Kentucky attractive to agribusinesses, said Kentucky Agriculture Commissioner Ryan Quarles. Traditional business incentives and agriculture resources like funding, networking and marketing support for startups sweeten the pot.
