  • A Kansas State University agricultural economist is optimistic about agriculture, which, he claims, “is the only business that will not go out of business.”
    He’s also enthusiastic about opportunities for women to fulfill leading roles in the success of agribusiness.
    As a featured speaker at the 2013 edition of the “Women Managing the Farm Conference” held in Manhattan recently, Vincent Amanor-Boadu challenged the more than 200 women attending the conference to be creative and think like entrepreneurs.
    Amanor-Boadu, who has earned distinction as a faculty member in the Department of Agricultural Economics in the College of Agriculture at K-State, sees opportunity for Kansans and agribusiness.
