MANHATTAN, Kan The new address is already on the letterhead as the Kansas Department of Agriculture prepares to complete its 56-mile move from Topeka to Manhattan.

KMAN-AM reports the agency will officially open for business Monday in its new quarters. The three-story building is on the edge of the Kansas State University campus next to the National Bio- and Agro-Defense Facility, which is still under construction.

The Agriculture Department announced plans for the move last year, saying it made sense to be located in what officials called the hub for the future of agriculture and biosciences in Kansas.

A few employees will remain at an office in Topeka, but about 150 jobs have been moved. Some workers have moved to Manhattan, and as many as 50 will carpool daily from the Topeka area.
