Today is National Ag Day, share your #soilselfie

National Ag Day is the perfect time to celebrate American farmers and how they support our food, fiber, and fuel systems. The Soil Health Partnership is celebrating National Ag Day by sharing #soilselfie --  a self-portrait with soil.

Soil is our business. SHP collects on-farm data to evaluate the impacts of soil health practices on the soil, the environment, and the farmer’s bottom line. We encourage you to join in the celebration by sharing a #soilselfie on social media, tag SHP, and share why soil health and agriculture are important to you!

This marks the 47th anniversary of National Ag Day. The National Ag Day program encourages every American to:  

  • Understand how food and fiber products are produced  
  • Appreciate the role agriculture plays in providing safe, abundant and affordable products  
  • Value the essential role of agriculture in maintaining a strong economy  
  • Acknowledge and consider career opportunities in the agriculture, food, and fiber industry. We are celebrating American farmers all week. 

Share your #soilselfie with us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and LinkedIn.
