The main goal of any Ag-in-the-Classroom program is to increase agricultural awareness among the students in school. One easy way to accomplish this is through a reading program that introduces agricultural themes using books at their grade level. These books are made available at cost to the county Farm Bureaus to purchase and use in their own local program.
It’s projected that farmers will have to feed 9 billion people by 2050. Today, significant improvements in farming methods, machinery and international trade have allowed agriculture to meet the nutritional needs of more than 7 billion people. These improvements will have to continue if we hope to feed 9 billion people by 2050. The goal of this publication is to help you, as a consumer, make informed decisions about the food you buy your family. We hope it will give you a better understanding of both where your food comes from and what the different labels you see in the store mean.
The Arkansas Ag in the Classroom Teacher Award recognizes an outstanding teacher in Arkansas that incorporates agricultural themes into non-agricultural curricula. If you know teachers who use Ag in the Classroom, please encourage them to apply for the award. Teachers can be self-nominated, nominated by fellow teachers, principals or superintendents, or nominated by a county Farm Bureau leader.
