AgAmerica is Inspired by the Resilience of the American Farmer

With many uncontrollable factors, like weather disturbances, the stakes are high for farmers.

Farmers are at the mercy of the weather—good or bad—and when natural disasters occur like hurricanes, floods, fires, earthquakes, and tornadoes, their operations become significantly impacted. In the last three years, at least 13 hurricanes have taken center stage, destroying communities and farmland across the country including: Hermine, Matthew, Harvey, Irma, Nate, Florence, Matthew, Michael, Chris, Leslie, Gert, Jose, Maria.Read More
