The LSU AgCenter’s presentation of AgMagic was a big hit with thousands of schoolchildren and adults. The event, which saw the LSU AgCenter transform its Parker Coliseum in Baton Rouge into a place where people could learn about the wonders and magic of agriculture, ran April 20-29. It was aimed at urban children and adults to help them understand that food, clothing, lumber and other products that result from agricultural production don’t just come from a store. The event featured a variety of plants and animals and even included a small replica of a forest planted on the coliseum’s dirt floor. Participants learned about various Louisiana crops, such as cotton and sugarcane, as well as the state’s diverse forestry industry.
