Earth Day isn’t only about agriculture, but agriculture occupies a significant place in the overall picture of environmental sustainability. From the world’s largest use of fresh water, to the land needed to grow food, agriculture is vitally important.
And that’s all of agriculture – from GM and conventional to organic crops; dairy farming; the raising of livestock; forestry; and so much more. Agriculture has a large environmental footprint, and it’s been our experience that farmers, ranchers and the people who are agriculture are working hard to make that footprint smaller.
