The West Central Region has much to offer new and expanding businesses, such as a workforce, first-class educational institutions, the availability of quality health care and superior quality of life features. An advanced and mature farming base and the region’s agricultural research capacity make the West Central Region a prime location for agribusiness. Specifically, the West Central Region has some of the best farmland in the United States, with farms and agriculture-related businesses contributing more than 209 million bushels of corn and soybeans to the state’s agriculture economy in 2010.
