The Vision for Illinois Agriculture was launched five years ago by representatives of Illinois food and agricultural organizations, in an effort to prepare Illinois for future success. This effort, encompassing the food and agricultural industry, government, and academia, is aimed at increasing the competitiveness of Illinois in the global marketplace.
