Agriculture is Michigan's second largest industry and with its proximity to the automotive industry and burgeoning biosciences and Information Technology sectors, the State is poised for food and agriculture technological innovation. Currently, resources for food and ag technology are siloed, the aim of this Co-Learning Plan is to work with stakeholders to identify and collect the materials needed to develop this sector.
