Agriculture is Everywhere

Look around: Agriculture is everywhere. Agriculture is making things grown on farms, like plants and animals, into things we use.

  • Do you eat food?
  • Do you use pencils and paper?

All these things came to you from agriculture! Even things like soap are made from fat from cattle and oil from plants such as corn and soybeans.
