Farmers: Be an advocate for agriculture

RSS

Agriculture is becoming more and more distant, said David Kohl, professor emeritus, Virginia Tech University, when he spoke with CSD Editor Kurt Lawton at the Wyffels Hybrids Corn Strategies Conference at Wild Rose Farm, Inc., near Galesburg, Ill. “Anyone involved in the ag industry has to be an advocate; not only to other producers, but to the non-farm public,” he says.

When a message comes from someone in the industry, rather than a corporate studio, it’s authentic. Bringing that authentic message to the non-farm public is going to be very critical to the success of agriculture, Kohl says.
