Kansas Information Guide

America's “Heartland” region is home to some of the country's most agriculturally, prosperous and, what many would describe as, beautiful places. Among these states, Kansas stands in the forefront, leading the nation, most times, in wheat, sorghum, and sunflower production. The hot summers and cold winters in the Eastern two thirds of the state, and the hot summers and mild winters in the Western one third of the state, blend perfectly to allow statewide agriculture to thrive.

Though Kansas was once referred to as “Bleeding Kansas,” there is nothing “bleeding” about it. As a matter of fact, Kansans have a lot to be proud of. Its state seal shows symbols of commerce and agriculture. In addition to wheat, sorghum, and sunflowers, a hardy demand for cattle, sheep, soybeans, cotton, hogs, corn, and salt is supplied within the confines of Kansas borders. Agriculturalists are not the only ones to benefit from the the benefits of Kansas, however. The state ranks eighth in national oil production, and is home to five large aerospace industry giants, including Boeing and Hawker-Beechcraft (formerly Raytheon), and hosts the headquarters of companies such as the Sprint Nextel Corporation and Payless Shoes, among others.

From agriculture to aerospace, when referring to Kansas the words of its state song “Home on the Range” may stand true: “Seldom is heard, a discouraging word.” One of Kansas' main attractions, the Kansas Cosmosphere and Space Center Museum, is a great place for filedtrips, family vacations, and provides a great learning experience for all ages. Though Kansas is a wonderful place to discuss, the only thing that seems to be better is being there in person--a business directory can give far greater insight.
