Was your grocery store stocked with nutritious food this year? Did you eat watermelon on Independence Day, pick apples in the fall and mash potatoes for Thanksgiving? This March 15th on National Ag Day, remember to #ThankAFarmer for continuing to produce your favorite foods throughout the year!
Every year on National Ag Day, organizations across the country gather to celebrate the food, fiber and fuel grown by American agriculture. Producers, government officials, ag-related organizations including from the crop protection industry, and countless others hold and attend events to recognize how much agriculture contributes to our daily lives. The crop protection industry is proud to support America’s farmers by providing them with tools to defend their fields from pests and disease.
