The Kansas Department of Agriculture will have a stronger presence in the Little Apple, but not right away.

Thursday Secretary Dale Rodman announced the department will move the majority of its offices to Manhattan in the Summer of 2014.

Rodman says the move will save money in the long term, increase research, and allow resources to be shared.

“Manhattan is the value-added center for agriculture. Locating the Kansas Department of Agriculture adjacent to the state’s land grand university, the National Bio and Agro-Defense Facility and other agricultural, bio-science and natural resource entities will establish KDA as a pillar in the KSU Foundation Research Park and enhance the overall effectiveness of the department,” Rodman said.

KDA will keep its main administrative office in Topeka.
