Agricultural March Madness

March 16, 2018

March celebrates food and the future of agriculture

 "To be interested in food but not food production is clearly absurd." 

- Wendell Berry
 
Whether it means a day off work or just an excuse to celebrate, Americans love their holidays. While everyone is familiar with Christmas, Easter, and Thanksgiving--to name a few--there are numerous less-than-famous holidays celebrated every day. Three celebrations during the month of March that the Council for Agricultural Science and Technology finds important are National Nutrition Month, National Ag Week, and National Ag Day. CAST's latest blog highlights the importance of these celebrations along with ways that you can join in on the fun.
 
This year, CAST will be doing our part in honoring National Ag Week with the rollout of our latest issue paper--Regulatory Barriers to the Development of Innovative Agricultural Biotechnology by Small Businesses and Universities--in Washington, D.C., on March 22-23. This event is free and open to the public. Click here for more information. We would love to see you in attendance.
