OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - The Oklahoma Department of Agriculture, Food and Forestry is seeking nominations for the Oklahoma Agricultural Hall of Fame.
The Governor's Outstanding Achievement Award in Agriculture was created in 1998 to recognize those who have helped lead the industry while demonstrating exemplary personal values and pursuing agricultural achievements in Oklahoma. Nominations for the award are being accepted through Feb. 7.
Examples of eligible agriculture enterprises are livestock and crop production, agribusiness, forestry, horticulture and nursery management. Nominations also recognize leadership in agricultural and state organizations as well as additional awards and honors.
The winner will be someone with at least 25 years in agriculture whose primary income is from agriculture or is retired. Previous award-winners have represented different areas of Oklahoma as well as a variety of agricultural groups and commodities.
