Celebrate Agriculture Week

kansas-department-of-agricultureIn recognition of the state’s largest industry, Kansas Governor Sam Brownback declared March 12-19 Kansas Agriculture Week. One event highlighted during Kansas Agriculture Week is the Neighbor to Neighbor statewide food drive, which began Feb. 18 and will conclude on Kansas Agriculture Day, March 19.

Each day of Kansas Agriculture Week will focus on a different agricultural theme, including nutrition, food safety, animal care, education and technology, environmental stewardship, serving the world and economic growth.

Secretary Dale Rodman encouraged Kansans to follow the department on Facebook and Twitter to engage in an online conversation about these issues.

In an effort to educate Kansans about agriculture, a “Dialogue on Kansas Agriculture” will take place on Kansas Agriculture Day, Tuesday, March 19 at 3:30 p.m. at the Kansas State Capitol.
