One of our latest uploads is our first blooper reel featuring the Rural Missouri staff. Do the walk of life Brick by brick, the National Agricultural Hall of Fame is building a pathway of knowledge and appreciation for the American farmer. Through the Farmer’s Walk of Fame, the hall is creating a place to honor your loved ones and show appreciation for agriculture at the same time. Based in Bonner Springs, Kan., the 164-acre museum was created in 1960 by President Dwight D. Eisenhower to serve as a place to recognize those who have made major contributions to agriculture and provide exhibits of the history of the industry in our country. Each donor will receive an engraved brick placed with the wording of your choice. A donation of $125 grants a 4-by-8 inch brick; for $225, an 8-by-8 inch brick will be awarded. Donors also will receive a membership to the Hall of Fame. The museum will reopen for the season in mid-April. You can contact the Agriculture Hall of Fame at 913721-1075 or info@aghalloffame.com. More information on directions and current exhibits is available at www.aghalloffame.com. N E W S In data just released from 2010, Missouri came in below the national average in electric rates. The average retail price in the Show-Me State was 7.78 cents per kilowatt-hour (kwh). This ranked 12th cheapest in the nation with the average national cost at 9.83 cents per kwh. To view statistics from other states, visit www.eia.gov/electricity/ state. B R I E F S the United States Department of Agriculture updated the Plant Hardiness Zone Map that advises how plants will fare in each climate. Divided into color zones, the map represents the average annual lowest temperature at any location. These average lows are a crucial factor in plant survival. Most Missourians will see they occupy a zone that is 5 degrees warmer compared to the previous map from 1990. This could make new plant species an option. To figure out the new zones, scientists examined average temperatures collected at weather stations from 1976 to 2005, a much longer period than used in previous maps. To print out the latest map or to view the interactive version, visit www.planthardiness.ars.usda.gov.
