Final week the nation celebrated the 51st annual Earth Day, a time to mirror on our impression on the setting. What began as an occasion to spotlight our want to wash the air and the water has developed some, and we heard a lot concerning the local weather too. However what do farmers suppose?
We turned to the Farm Progress PANEL to get their ideas on the thought of “Earth Day” and the eye it brings to the setting. After all in farm nation planters are rolling and there is loads of ‘earth contact’ happening however we obtained a stable response on the query we posed.
We requested: With Earth Day, how do you see all this consideration to the setting one day a 12 months?
About 14% famous that celebrating environmental focus is an important concept. That is not a giant quantity, however learn on to see why which may be true.
Just below one-quarter famous that this annual occasion brings uninformed consideration to agriculture. In a enterprise, the place farmers know the common client hasn’t been close to a farm of their lifetimes, this is a rising concern. Consideration to agriculture is not at all times dangerous, however uninformed consideration can problem a enterprise. It will possibly additionally, nevertheless, be a chance to tell that public and plenty of farmers did that via social media channels.
And maybe that is as a result of almost two-thirds of these responding to this newest PANEL famous “I’ve been doing ‘Earth Day’ all my life.” Farmers are conservationists, working to protect land and with many farmer-readers at Farm Progress on their land for a number of generations Earth Day is not only a one-day occasion.
Fascinating responses to this environmental query. Due to everybody who responded to this PANEL.
