Each year, National Ag Day recognizes and celebrates the critical role of agriculture in our country. In addition to producing the food, fiber, and renewable resources we need, agriculture has an essential role in maintaining a strong economy.
As the population grows, so does the demand for food and fiber. Because of advancements in farming, America’s farmers can produce more while practicing sustainability for the future. Consider this: in the 1960s, each farmer fed 25 people. Today, each farmer feeds more than 165 people.
The theme for this year’s National Ag Day (held March 22, 2022) is “Agriculture: Growing a Climate for Tomorrow.” About 22 million people are working in ag-related fields. As stewards of the land, agricultural workers lead the way in preservation and innovation – making sure we’ll always have safe and healthy food for our families.
