Agricultural Innovation Partnership Program

The Agricultural Innovation Partnership (AIP) program helps catalyze innovation, generates new ideas and supports collaborative partnerships advancing Minnesota’s value-added agriculture industry.

Deliverables from the program include applied research studies, as well as guides or tools to help Minnesota businesses use and add value to the state’s agricultural commodities.
