Agri Arkansas April 2016

As we celebrate AETN's fiftieth anniversary this year, Agri Arkansas takes a look back at just a few of the historical highlights of the last one-hundred-fifty years in three of Arkansas's agricultural powerhouses: cotton, rice and poultry. While our state's agricultural heritage is rich and diverse well beyond these three sectors, they have each in their own way defined and reflected the state of agriculture in the state of Arkansas. Also, we visit an educational farmstead called The Phoenix Center just outside of Russellville, Arkansas as University of the Ozarks' sustainable agriculture students pitch in on a workday. Plus, we travel down to Hot Springs and take a look at their community gardening program.
