We can grow corn, sugar beets, apples, grapes and more! Talk to the expert, look at different soils and discover how Nebraska's soil influences agriculture. Or, discover how we use solar panels and wind turbines to make electricity in Nebraska. Talk to an expert, see a solar panel up close, and view the inside of a wind turbine.
