Researchers in the Department of Agricultural Economics at the University of Kentucky conduct innovative applied research, foster long-lasting relationships with stakeholders, and prepare the next generation of agricultural economists. A skilled team of faculty, staff and graduate students utilize the latest research methods to address challenging disciplinary and interdisciplinary questions in the areas of production economics, marketing and consumer behavior, and regional economics/rural economic development. This is accomplished through a collegial environment that fosters creative and collaborative investigation of relevant issues impacting agriculture, the food sector, and rural communities locally, nationally, and internationally.
