As the world’s population continues to grow, the demand for affordable food becomes even greater. For years, Mosaic has supported youth farming in Florida through agricultural education. We work with several FFA and 4H programs in schools throughout our five-county operating area.
On an annual basis, we participate in livestock sales during county fairs. Programs like this teach students in FFA and 4H valuable skills like responsibility, how to properly care for and raise animals and how to live off the land.
This National Ag Day, we celebrate school-based agricultural education and the important role that agriculture teachers play in our schools and communities.
Today, more than half of the phosphate used by farmers in the U.S. is produced right here in Florida. We’re honored to help prepare future farmers for leadership and career success and put food on the table for millions of families in the future.
