How to Learn More About Arizona Agriculture Using 4 Useful Resources

By Kevin Rogers, Arizona Farm Bureau President: Arizona Farm Bureau is not the only voice in agriculture, but it is a significant one. Certainly Arizona agriculture needs all of the advocates it can assemble. To build our advocates it's wise, therefore, to share our resources so that everyone, certainly our Arizona families, can understand Arizona agriculture.

Christopher Columbus’ detractors may have been correct except as to geography. Politically and economically it is a flat world. Actions and events that appear remote are instantly upon us creating impact upon our businesses. Markets move with real time news and for farmers and ranchers (business in general), our costs of production are constantly bombarded with news and regulations. Although diminished in numbers, our economy is significant. It is often said we need a seat at the table because we set the table.
