The Kansas Rural Center’s Rural Papers newsletter offers practical information on sustainable agricultural practices and profiles of Kansas farmers who are utilizing these practices, as well as timely coverage of farm policy and environmental issues from a state and a national perspective. The newsletter also offers analysis and commentary on developments in industrial agriculture, such as biotechnology and genetic engineering, corporate concentration, and industrial livestock production. Information about upcoming conferences and events are included in each issue. Edited by KRC’s Programs and Policy Director, Mary Fund, the Rural Papers is published four to five times a year.
