Agri-Culture "Communicating Agriculture"

Most of the country's population now lives in urban areas, yet it makes political decisions concerning land and agriculture. Farmers constantly make environmental decisions and try to understand urban thinking. It therefore seemed appropriate to create an organization such as Agri-Culture to promote mututal understanding of a whole range or topics concerning agriculture.
