مزارع: لاري المركب الشراعي

بلد: United States (أيوا)

حيث تقع المزارع الخاصة بك?

My family farm islocated north of Iowa Falls in north central Iowa. حول 100 miles north of Des Moines.

كيف تبدو المزارع الخاصة بك مثل? ما هو حجم المزارع الخاصة بك? ماذا تنمو أو رفع?

I have 400 فدان, split half and half between field corn and soybeans. I mostly no-till all my acres except where compaction is a problem.All ofmy crops use GMO technology to make my conservation program feasible. As a part of my farm operation, what I consider part of my everyday chores, Iagvocate! I started giving interviews back in the 80s during theUSfarm crisis. منذ خمسة عشر عاما, I joined the speaker corps of the National Pork Producers call Operation Mainstreet. Eleven years ago, I joined the Iowa Farm Bureau speaker corps. I spoke to many local groups and gave local interviews. I wrote many letters to Iowa papers. ثم وقعت وسائل الاعلام الاجتماعية! تويتر,FaceBook, blogging………and now I have aworldwidenetwork that can reach millions of people. I am very passionate sharing what modern agriculture is all about because public opinion isinfluencing policyregulations that hinder raising our food.

ما كنت أتطلع إلى أكثر كما كنت تحضير للمشاركة في 2018 مزارع المائدة المستديرة العالمية?

I have met many farmers from around the world from whom I have learned much. I want to continue meeting farmers to hear their stories, their problems, and their successes. And I want to share mine.

Sailer has embraced mobile technology and being an agvocate.
