Best of #NationalAgWeek, #AgDay, #Borlaug100

Jordan Anderson 04/03/2014 @ 1:14pm Digital Content Editor for Successful Farming magazine and Agriculture.com

National Ag Week 2014 was the biggest and best yet! Just as social media is continuing to become an every day part of our lives, many took to social media venues including Twitter to share ag facts, gratitude to farmers, and how they celebrated #NationalAgWeek, #AgDay, and #Borlaug100. Here are some of our favorites:
