California agriculture is very diverse, with its many unique areas of production and processing. With more than 400 commodities, there is a lot to Learn About Ag! Through collaboration with various funders, we have created a few unique pages that bring together an abundance of resources related to specific ag topics.
- LearnAboutAg... Beef
California is one of the nation's top beef-producing states. Cattle have played a critical role in our state's history, and they continue to be a part of the landscape and culture. This page was brought to you through our partnership with the California Beef Council.
- LearnAboutAg... Plant Nutrients
Just like people, plants need nutrients in order to grow. Discover the main plant nutrients: nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium, and how they help give plants the strength and energy they need to grow and produce crops.
- LearnAboutAg... California Specialty Crops
Specialty crops are fruits and vegetables, tree nuts, dried fruits, horticulture and nursery crops. California produces almost half of all US-grown fruits, nuts and vegetables! This page was brought to you from a Specialty Crop Block Grant offered by California Department of Food and Agriculture.
- LearnAboutAg... STEM
Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics are essential educational disciplines in the field of agriculture. Each unit features lessons that promote the development of STEM abilities and critical thinking skills. There are inquiry-based labs and real life challenges for students to better understand animal agriculture (grades 3-5), food science (grades 6-8), and sustainable energy (grades 9-12).
