Archer Daniels Midland Co. announces its support of the Agriculture Council of America (ACA) and its effort to celebrate American farming through National Agriculture Day and National Agriculture Week.

Across America, ADM joins with growers and producers, agricultural associations, universities, government agencies, local groups and others to celebrate the abundance provided by American agriculture. Coordinated by the ACA, National Agriculture Day and Week aim to educate Americans about the manufacture of food and fiber products and about the essential role of agriculture in maintaining a strong economy.



"We are proud to support the Agriculture Council of America in its efforts to educate Americans about the importance of agriculture," said G. Allen Andreas, chairman and chief executive. "For over 100 years, our Company has partnered with American farmers, working to create markets for their products here and around the globe."



The goal of National Agriculture Day and Week is to raise the American public's awareness of the role U.S. agriculture plays in the economy and in our everyday lives. With innovations in technology and processes, the American farm is producing food more efficiently today than ever before in order to meet the rising needs for food from an increasing global population.
