What is Agriculture?

Agriculture is one of the first true industries the world has ever known and it has fuelled civilization before the beginnings of recorded history. Modern agriculture varies significantly from the agricultural industry of even a few decades ago. Fuelling that change has been world leading science, attentive environmental stewardship and the renowned prairie innovation and work ethic.

Agriculture most often conjures thoughts of farmers tending their fields on tractors, but as pressures of the modern world mount, it is essential for human life for agriculture to evolve with our needs. Today modern agriculture is a science and a challenging, exciting business.
