At the table: Sustainable

By Gene Hall

Sustainable. It's not a new term for agriculture. And it’s one that’s growing in popularity among consumers.

We all hear it. We all use it. We all talk about it around our tables. But what does sustainable really mean?

It’s farmers and ranchers doing more with less. Planting fewer acres. Using less fuel and fertilizer. All while continuing to grow more safe, affordable food and fiber for you and me.

A sustainable food future is the environment and agriculture working hand-in-hand. To feed those in our communities, nation and world. To help shape our future by always striving for improvement.

A 365-day promise for wise use of soil, water and energy.

Agriculture leads the charge in sustainability. Farmer and rancher innovation, using technology and common sense to do more with less. Today, tomorrow and for years to come.

The preceding commentary is brought to you by Texas Farm Bureau, the “Voice of Texas Agriculture.” Called “Your Texas Agriculture Minute,” TFB will issue thought-provoking editorials each week—via print and audio—to spark understanding of agriculture in the Lone Star State and its impact on each and every Texan.

You may read this week’s editorial above or listen to the audio version.
