Pennsylvania Advanced Agriculture Cross-Sector Collaborative

Launched in April 2023, the Collaborative is a statewide network that brings together leaders from industry, government, organized labor, nonprofits, and academia to create the conditions for innovative, technological, and market-driven solutions that will bolster agriculture as a legacy industry in Pennsylvania’s economy while sustaining and creating jobs.

The Collaborative is a:

  • Public-Private Partnership: Driven by private sector leaders and champions from state government who share a commitment to Pennsylvania’s agricultural industries. Nonprofit, organized labor, academic, and regional organizations also play important roles in driving the Collaborative’s action agenda.
  • Catalyst & Enabler: The Collaborative drives action around “Advanced Agriculture”, creating the conditions for infrastructure investments to be made in Pennsylvania through compelling messaging as well as policy and regulatory frameworks.
  • Driver of Sustained Commitment: The Collaborative is designed to mobilize and sustain the long-term, public-private commitment needed to realize the economic opportunities of agriculture in the Commonwealth.

Action teams meet monthly to identify objectives, goals, and action items within their targeted interest areas. The full Collaborative meets quarterly to advance action on the priorities identified by the Collaborative’s small action teams.
