Bob Holden on Jobs

Former Democratic MO Governor


Invest in life sciences to apply farm products

I want to link the scientist with the farmer through our Department of Agriculture. Life science possibilities can provide new opportunities for our next generation of family farmers. Our potential for new foods and new uses for food products are endless through life science research. At the same time, the life sciences will strengthen our economy through the high wage jobs and industry growth they create. The return on our investment in life science health research is more than 15 to 1.
