Corn Comments 1.23 – Farming Efficiency

 

Corn Comments Podcast with Jim Woster.

Now that’s a challenge, but we can do it. Thanks to human ingenuity, farmers are producing five times as much corn as they did in the 1930’s using 20% less land along with less water and fertilizer while protecting natural resources.

Farmers really are the True Environmentalists.
