Latest Work: Value Chain of Colorado Agriculture
This newly released Colorado State University study reveals various linkages that tie Colorado's agriculture industry together, and provides an opportunity to build bridges between the different commodities and communities that make up Colorado agriculture. Read the complete study, executive summary, insights and conclusions or news release. Or, watch a video overview.
The "Bottom-Up" tour reinforced a well-known fact: agriculture is a major economic engine for Colorado. Our office has worked to build awareness about the importance of the Colorado agriculture industry, and as a result, agriculture is now identified as a Key Industry within the Colorado Blueprint. We are also overseeing a benchmark study to characterize Colorado's food and agriculture industry, linkages, and potential.
