OWEN, Wis. (AP) — Business leaders in a central Wisconsin county are planting seeds for the future of agribusiness.

Utility work will begin soon for the nearly $10 million Central Wisconsin Agriculture Innovation Center on about 70 acres in Clark County. About $4 million comes from federal funding.

WEAU-TV reports planners expect the agribusiness center to be finished and filled within the next three to five years. It's expected to create at least 240 jobs.
