One of Nebraska’s greatest assets is its caretakers’ ability to produce food in and on its nutrient, rich soils. With the advent of irrigation systems, Nebraska has become an even stronger agriculture-based state, contributing to the national and global economy today. As we celebrate Nebraska’s statehood for years to come, we honor all who contributed to Nebraska’s agriculture advancement.
About the Book:
This Nebraska agricultural history book is not all-inclusive of farming, ranching or the significant role Nebraskans have played in the success of technological and biological advancements in the past 150 years. But it is with utmost integrity and desire that we bring attention and recognition to what we refer to as the “SPICE” (spaces, places, inventions, commodities, events) and the people of the Cornhusker State who helped us to narrow and identify the stories that were selected for the pages of this book.
