Agriculture Facts from Around the World

Ok, I have to admit this is a pretty cool idea and I wish I had thought of it first. Ryan Goodman from Arkansas, US is on a mission to collect agriculture facts from around the world – specifically by postcard (he just l-o-v-e-s getting postcards).

His goal for 2011 is to collect a unique ag fact from all 50 states in the US. We think we can help him achieve this, plus go a little bit better, by having our global community send him postcards from all around the world. AGCO is distributed in 140 countries, so our customers, dealers, and company folks should be able to help Ryan out. He will then take the information and share it with a unique post from each state or country on his blog. This is an amazing way to learn about agriculture around the world.

If you are interested in helping him out, send him a direct message on Twitter or Facebook or email him ( and he will send you his postal mailing address. Be sure to include a return address and he promises to return the favor with a post card from Arkansas. Let’s all support “Stamps on AgFacts“. Watch his video below:

AGCO is going to start off with a fact about Georgia – home of our corporate headquarters and Ryan, don’t worry, we’ll get our postcard in the mail right away… “Although we are officially known as ‘the Peach State,’ Georgia produces almost half of all the peanuts produced in the US each year.”

Where are you from and will you commit to helping Ryan achieve his goal?

    Hello. Yesterday, doing my research about pesticides and herbicides I found one great website, with Open Access materials in this field. They are some books about Herbicides – Theory and Application, Pesticides and Fungicides. This is link which will connect you with these 6 books . They are free to download. Some important aspects regarding the multisided impacts of herbicides on the living world are highlighted in this books. I am sure that the readers will find a lot of helpful information, even if they are only slightly interested in the topic. I found this very useful ! Cheers!
