Agriculture is essential for a country to produce the food they need to survive. Farmers are finding it difficult to obtain the funds they need to keep their farms in business. Agriculture rakes in trillions of dollars to the U.S. economy. In fact, the Agriculture industry contributed $1.053 trillion dollars to the U.S. Gross Domestic Product, as per the United States Department of Agriculture. However, finding money to help your farm grow and survive is very difficult. It’s no wonder that people in the Agriculture industry are looking into grants and crowdfunding. Here is a list of the top 3 Agriculture campaigns on YouHelp.
