The Great Plains Agricultural Council was founded in 1946, merging the earlier Northern Great Plains Regional Agricultural Council (1938) and the Southern Great Plains Regional Agricultural Council (1939). Its purpose was to provide an organization for cooperation and coordination in dealing with key issues in Great Plains agriculture. Members included representatives from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the experiment stations and the land grant colleges and their extension services in the Great Plains states. The Council sought to identify and evaluate critical issues, encourage and develop research and action on them, and represent the Great Plains agriculture in the region and the nation. The Council disbanded in 1996. The collection primarily includes correspondence, committee reports, minutes and publications.
