Each issue of AgMag has a corresponding Teacher’s Guide that contains classroom integration ideas, Nebraska content area standards connections, and a glossary.

Why AgMag? Agriculture connects people. Farms and ranches are everywhere in our nation. Agricultural businesses are in towns, cities, and communities in every part of Nebraska. In Nebraska, agriculture creates one in four jobs, which fuels the economy. Without agriculture, we wouldn’t be able to feed, clothe, and fuel the world. The bottom line: agriculture is an important industry for all of us!
