Sustainability the focus of three Ag organizations

November 22, 2018

KANSAS CITY - Three agricultural organizations signed a memorandum of understanding at the National Association of Farm Broadcasters Convention in Kansas City.

National Corn Growers Association President Lynn Chrisp tells News Talk WJAG, the National Pork Board, United Soybean Board, and they are teaming up on a sustainability research platform that will benefit farmers from all three organizations.

“All three organizations have experienced a ramp up of questions from the consuming public regarding just exactly what it is that we’re doing, and why we’re doing it, and how that enters into sustainability from an environmental impact going forward.”

Chrisp says on the farmers’ side, this gives them the opportunity to weigh in and evaluate their own farming operations to see if they’re making continuous improvements.
