On Tuesday, April 3, U.S. Senator Michael Bennet toured Tuxedo Corn Farm in Olathe to highlight a farmer-led agriculture sustainability project.
The Uncompahgre Valley Soil Health Project was created to address the threat of high production costs and diminished soil quality facing farmers.
It is supported by the Natural Resources Conservation Service. Bennet inspected the farm's irrigation drip system, which cuts water use by 60 percent, decreases runoff and improves river health.
Tuxedo Farm owner John Harold also talked to Bennet on the importance of improving the H-2A visa program to help ag producers address labor shortages.blog comments powered by Disqus
