Leaving a full day conference reminded of why I love being part of the agricultural community! I got to spend the day surrounded by growers who want to produce the highest quality food for the world. We talked about how we need to make a better effort in markets around the world informing consumers on the food they eat! We talked about how we want to implement more sustainable practises on all farms to produce more, better quality food! We talked about climate and weather trends and how we need to adjust to the global changes!. . And best of all we got to network together and share our love of agriculture! I always love being reminded how humble and caring and prideful ever farmer is! They truly love their job of feeding the world!
March 22 is World Water Day! ⠀ ⠀ Did you know that water, agriculture and climate change are all interconnected?⠀ ⠀ Agriculture is a water-intensive practice, which is a concern for U.S. regions that have increasing drought risk. Agriculture is also a leading source of water pollution, from nutrient runoff, agricultural chemicals and livestock manure. Nutrient runoff into bodies of water promotes the growth of algal blooms, and this is exacerbated by warmer water temperatures resulting from climate change.⠀ -⠀ Repost @UN_water, @ClimateNexus⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #worldwaterday#unwater#unitednations#waterislife#water#pollution#agriculture#climatechange#globalwarming
