IMPACT of Agriculture in Kandiyohi County magazine now available online

By definition, agriculture seems simple enough – growing crops and animals to provide for the masses. The reach of agriculture, however, goes beyond the fathomable and, in all reality, stretches to most anything imaginable.

Throughout this section we try to give readers – both familiar and unfamiliar with agriculture – an idea of just how far-reaching agriculture is in today’s society.

Understand this is just a glimpse, it would be a much larger undertaking – nearly impossible – to delve into it all.

As it has been put to students: "I don't care what you are thinking about going into, we've got a job for you ... in agriculture."
