The Interdisciplinary Center for Agricultural Profitability, approved March 11, 2021, supports informed decision-making in agriculture through applied research and education by facilitating faculty research, conducting outreach related to agricultural profitability, and training undergraduate and graduate students.

The Center for Ag Profitability builds on strengths present in the University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s Department of Agricultural Economics through collaboration with other research and education units within IANR and the University of Nebraska system. It aims to serve agricultural producers, agribusiness professionals, and the economy in Nebraska and beyond.

The center focuses concerted effort among social science, biological, and engineering disciplines to provide the research and educational programs required to keep Nebraska’s farmers and ranchers financially healthy.
