How Idaho farmers are growing crops in a more sustainable way
When it comes to potatoes, Idaho is the number one producer in the U.S., growing nearly 30% of the nations supply.
Like many other areas of the country our state is feeling the impacts of climate change, experiencing shortages in the famous crop, as recently as last year. Which is why more farmers are making a shift towards regenerative agriculture, using sustainable practices that have the potential to forever change the industry.
Ladd Wahlen, a forth-generation farmer and Brad Johnson, Agricultural Strategy Manager for The Nature Conservancy joined Idaho Matters to talk more about this new method of farming.
