World-Leading Innovation With a Local Touch

Agriculture is an $94 billion industry in Missouri, and our agtech workforce consists of more than 456,000 people. So much agricultural product is shipped via river barge from the St. Louis region that a 15-mile section of the Mississippi is known as the “Ag Coast of America.”
