sus•tain•a•bil•i•ty (noun) Supplying a growing world with food, fuel, feed and fiber — while safeguarding its resources for future generations.
Our world’s natural resources matter.
The agriculture industry depends upon clean water, soil and air — as does the world’s supply of food, fuel, feed and fiber. Every year, Nebraska’s farmers are growing more with less — less water, fewer chemicals, less land and a lower impact on the environment.
South central Nebraska farmer Diane Karr, Ruth Ready, who farms outside Scribner, Nebraska, and also assists her husband in his high school chemistry classroom and Denise McAfee, a farmer from Leigh, Nebraska, address what farmers are doing to protect our natural resources.
