March 18th is National Ag Day, a time when producers, agriculture associations, corporations, universities, government agencies and countless others across America gather to recognize and celebrate the abundance provided by American Agriculture.
As the world population soars, there is even greater demand for the food, fiber and renewable resources produced in the United States.
The National Ag Day program believes that every American should:
- Understand how food, fiber and renewable resource products are produced.
- Value the essential role of agriculture in maintaining a strong economy.
- Appreciate the role agriculture plays in providing safe, abundant and affordable products.
- Acknowledge and consider career opportunities in the agriculture, food, fiber and renewable
Agriculture provides almost everything we eat, use and wear on a daily basis, and is increasingly contributing to fuel and other bio-products. Each year, members of the agricultural industry gather together to promote American agriculture. This effort helps millions of consumers understand the value of agriculture in their daily lives.
