Earth Day and Agriculture: Let's Celebrate the Planet!

The Earth’s water, energy and land resources support all life in many different ways. With scientific advances, these resources are being used in sustainable ways to provide us with healthy and safe foods.

Farmers, scientific researchers and consumers all play a role in sustainably supporting our current food supply demands and ensuring food resources for our future. This year, for Earth Day, we thought we would highlight some the key ways farmers and food scientists are supporting the environment and our appetites! It’s definitely worth celebrating!
