Senate Resolution No. 512

BY: Senator HINCHEY

LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION memorializing Governor
Andrew M. Cuomo to proclaim March 21-27, 2021, as
Agriculture Week in the State of New York

WHEREAS, Hardworking American farmers provide New York State, the
Nation, and much of the world with a safe, healthy, affordable, and
abundant food supply; and

WHEREAS, This Legislative Body is justly proud to memorialize
Governor Andrew M. Cuomo to proclaim March 21-27, 2021, as Agriculture
Week in the State of New York, in conjunction with the observance of
National Agriculture Week; and

WHEREAS, Agriculture Week recognizes and celebrates the abundance
provided by agriculture; every year, producers, agricultural
associations, corporations, universities, government agencies and
countless others across America join together to recognize the
contributions of agriculture; and

WHEREAS, Each American farmer feeds more than 165 people, a dramatic
increase from 25 people in the 1960s; quite simply, American agriculture
is doing more, and doing it better; as the world population soars, there
is an even greater demand for the food and fiber produced in the United
States; and

WHEREAS, Agriculture provides almost everything we eat, use and wear
on a daily basis, however, too few people truly understand this
contribution; this is particularly the case in our schools, where
students may only be exposed to agriculture if they enroll in related
vocational training; and

WHEREAS, By building awareness, the Agriculture Council of America
is encouraging young people to consider career opportunities in
agriculture; and

WHEREAS, The celebration of National Agriculture Week is in
recognition of all the farmers who feed us and our families every day
and of the importance of agriculture as a vital industry and economic
driver in New York State; now, therefore, be it

RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations to
memorialize Governor Andrew M. Cuomo to proclaim March 21-27, 2021, as
Agriculture Week in the State of New York, in conjunction with the
observance of National Agriculture Week, honoring and recognizing the
important contributions of all branches of farming to the health,
economic well-being, environment, beauty, and future of New York State;
and be it further

RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be
transmitted to The Honorable Andrew M. Cuomo, Governor of the State of
New York.
