IGP Institute

IGP Institute Resource Library

The IGP Institute aims to be the first stop when participants, course graduates and industry professionals need to find answers. We are the source where they can go to continue to enhance their learning and understanding of grain processing, grain storage, grain markets and all IGP Institute-related topics.

The IGP Institute offers course participants, graduates and industry professionals multiple resources: The IGP Institute Collection, K-State Departmental Collections, Course Manager Suggestions and General Articles of Note. All of these are accessible from this webpage and will lead you to a vast array of information and resources.

IGP Institute Collection

The IGP Institute has established a collection within K-REx to assist course participants, industry professionals and stakeholders. This collection is specific to the work and research being done by the IGP Institute and the courses offered, featuring articles by course managers, affiliated lecturers as well as work by grain science and industry faculty and faculty of other K-State departments. The collection is growing and will continually be updated as more articles are published with current research and articles of value, no matter their publication date, are added.
