Historic Poster Collections

The Poster Collection depicts such areas as the development of the poultry industry, insect control, plant protection, and the role of agriculture in World War I. From increased production to seed selection to the conservation of farm products through careful storage, canning, drying, and preserving, these historic posters present unique documentation on past efforts to disseminate agricultural information at national, state, and local levels.
