The Agriculture Marketing Program, within the Kansas Department of Agriculture, facilitates the Simply Kansas program to aid in the promotion and awareness of Kansas made agricultural products.
Agriculture Value Added Loan Program
The Agriculture Value Added Loan Program is a low-interest loan program available to agricultural producers, entrepreneurs and existing companies that are adding value to agricultural products through further processing or marketing techniques. The program covers three areas: value added agriculture; agritourism attraction development; and diversified farm and specialty production.
Agritourism Vendor Assistance
Agritourism operators who register with the State are eligible for a variety of benefits, including agritourism scholarships to help pay for educational seminars, marketing assistance and a tax credit to help offset liability insurance. Registered vendors are also listed on the State’s tourism site, TravelKS.com.
International Trade Assistance
The Division promotes Kansas agricultural products globally by conducting trade missions to target countries and coordinating itineraries for foreign buying teams. Division staff offers importer lists and access to databases and foreign market analysis data, as well as technical information regarding livestock shipment, health regulations, payment terms and other exportation requirements.
Kansas Product Pavilions
Division staff sponsors pavilions at major domestic food shows to assist Kansas processed food companies in promoting their products to a national and international audience.
