As Commissioner of the Texas Department of Agriculture, I have found it's very important to stay on top of key issues that face Texans today. I set up this blog to help you stay informed about agricultural happenings that may affect you.

From the food that you eat and the clothes that you wear, agriculture affects your daily life whether you are aware of it or not. Did you know that Texas ranks first in cotton production in the U.S. and has a statewide economic impact of $5.2 billion?

I hope you continue to check out this blog and see how the Texas Department of Agriculture is committed to keeping Texas children healthy as well as keeping the state's economy thriving.
