DECATUR -- One vital industry serving this nation's needs involves early mornings, late nights and getting a little dirty. It is sometimes a thankless job but one that is essential for sustaining life on this planet. Since the time of the early hunter/gatherers, agriculture has been a part of everyday life.

The continuation of this industry depends on organizations such as Future Farmers of America which provides school-age students the training and support they need to pursue careers in this industry.
