“Biological diversity is the key to the maintenance of the world as we know it.”
~ E.O. Wilson, Biodiversity
From wineries to row crops and fruit orchards to livestock, Missouri’s agriculture is diverse and rich. And if you live on one of Missouri’s 107,000 farms, you are especially aware of the importance of good land management to improve productivity and to care for the land entrusted to you. Today’s modern farmers are looking for new ways to improve the bottom line while conserving the land. Native grasses and wildflowers could be an answer to filling a gap in your farm or ranch productivity and profits.
The Missouri Department of Agriculture (MDA) has many programs and services, including domestic and international marketing assistance, to support you.
