Planet Agriculture is a hands-on, interactive, educational exhibit designed to tell agriculture’s story while demonstrating the impact farming and ranching has on our daily lives.
Planet Agriculture is funded by Texas Farm Bureau as part of their Agriculture Education department.
Planet Agriculture uses interactive computer games, videos, static graphics, by-products and live demonstrations to educate consumers on where our food and fiber comes from.
Planet Agriculture is also designed to show the scope and diversity of Texas Agriculture.
Planet Agriculture has a wide variety of commodity displays including beef cattle, dairy cattle, pork, sheep and goats, poultry, equine, wildlife, cotton, corn, wheat, rice, grain sorghum, water, renewable energy and forestry.
Planet Agriculture’s exhibit ranges from 1,500 square feet to 10,000 square feet.
Planet Agriculture’s newest and most popular attraction is the Harvest Experience trailer. The Harvest Experience Trailer provides visitors the opportunity to climb aboard a combine cab and experience the sights, sound and feel of a real life corn harvest through video and audio components.
