The Agriculture Council of America (ACA) will host National Agriculture Day on March 19, 2013.

This will mark the 40th anniversary of National Ag Day which is celebrated in classrooms and communities across the country. The theme for Ag Day 2013 is “Generations Nourishing Generations.”

The National Ag Day program encourages every American to:

  • Understand how food and fiber products are produced.
  • Appreciate the role agriculture plays in providing safe, abundant and affordable products.
  • Value the essential role of agriculture in maintaining a strong economy.
  • Acknowledge and consider career opportunities in the agriculture, food and fiber industry.

In addition to the events in Washington, D.C. on March 19, the ACA will once again feature the Ag Day Essay Contest. New for 2013 will be the Ag Day Poster Contest.
