What is Agriculture?

While farming is admirable as a way of life, it is also a business. Therefore, our research-based programs promote: effective production practices; competitive pricing; business management skills; environmentally sound production practices; alternative agriculture businesses; youth education about food and fiber sources; successful living on a few acres.
