Educating Our Friends and Neighbors About Agriculture

From the Ground Up educates our friends and neighbors in the Brazos Valley about agriculture and its impact on their everyday lives. We talk with our members about their agricultural operations, academics about technological advancements and outreach, legislators about issues that impact rural life, and a host of other people who have insight to share about our nation's food and fiber. You can watch the weekly television segment at approximately 6:15 a.m. on Thursdays or during the Saturday 6 o'clock evening news on KBTX-TV 3, Bryan-College Station's CBS affiliate.
