I think we do pretty good stuff.
Recently, I heard a radio spot on the pop radio station I listen to, as I drove to work in the morning. 1. I thought, jeez this is really great to hear someone spreading the other side of the story, 2. this is great that people that aren't familiar with agriculture are hearing our story, but 3. this is sponsored by Monsanto, hmm.
Monsanto name has been brought up negatively in the news more times than positively, but I believe that without some of the scientific advancements they have made would we be able to feed the world? Probably not. Their new website provides some great stories and videos. I especially liked this one.
We need farmers, because your garden in your backyard unfortunately won't feed the world.
