The Story

Agriculture is an industry so diverse and large that it can create an interesting conversation about global food, fiber and fuel production.

Agri-Word is a blog that addresses these conversations. The posts reflect agriculture in the news-both local, national and worldwide. I also observe fellow agriculture journalists and non-agriculture journalists in the stories they produce.

The other part of this blog defines agriculture words.

Agriculture also has a lot of lingo. The industry has a language that is sometimes confusing to the everyday non-agriculturalist. Even farm kids like myself have a difficulty understanding a word or two. So, it is my goal to dissect one agriculture word every week to hopefully gain a stronger understanding of how people define agriculture large and small scale.

Word examples include anything from organic to no-till farming. I look at easy ways to get agriculture news as well.

I want to get a feel for the future of agriculture through your eyes. Tell me what you think, how you define a word and where you would like to see change in agriculture reporting or industry.
