March 19 celebrates agriculture industry, which brings more than $100 billion to Texas economy

AUSTIN -- Recognizing farmers and ranchers play a critical role in nourishing today’s population as well as future generations, Agriculture Commissioner Todd Staples today is encouraging Texans to join him in celebrating National Agriculture Day.

“Agriculture is critical to the life of every Texan,” Commissioner Staples said. “Each American farmer raises enough food each year to feed 155 people. Today’s farmers and ranchers are more productive and efficient than ever before, but as our population grows there will be an even greater demand for food. To ensure a safe and affordable food supply, it is important we support the agriculture industry.”

Agriculture contributes more than $100 billion to the Texas economy each year and supports about 1.8 million agriculture-related jobs, ranging from journalism and advertising to commodity trading.

“More than just food and clothing, agriculture contributes to our homes, health, lifestyle and the prosperity of this country,” Commissioner Staples said. “I ask all Texans to take time, especially on National Ag Day, to celebrate and thank our farmers and ranchers for their hard work, and for making Texas a powerhouse of agricultural productivity.”

National Agriculture Day is part of National Agriculture Week, which runs March 17-23. To learn more about Texas farmers and ranchers, and the everyday ways in which they improve our lives, visit Agriculture is Your Culture.
