The University of Missouri-Columbia could end up having one of two U.S. agroterrorism centers being set up by the federal Department of Homeland Security. The idea was discussed at an agroterrorism summit held Friday at the University. Senator Jim Talent, a member of the U.S. Senate Agriculture Committee, spoke at the meeting saying it’s time to give the same attention to intentional agriculture outbreaks as we give to accidental ones. Talent says having an agroterrorism center in Missouri will not only address a major concern of those involved in agriculture in the state but it will bring a lot of federal dollars into Missouri.
