The MSU College of Agriculture and Natural Resources is releasing the first-ever Michigan Agriculture & Food Index, or MAFI.  It's designed to gauge the business climate for agriculture and food business within the state.

Current State's Scott Pohl went to this morning's Ag Expo kickoff breakfast to learn more about the Michigan Ag and Food index from the director of the MSU Product Center, Chris Peterson, and MSU College of Agriculture and Natural Resources Dean Fred Poston.
