Description

The day after Spring begins, the American farm sector has, for years, been celebrating National Ag Day. To commemorate the official announcement every March by the secretary of Agriculture, ag industry leaders flock to DC to talk with lawmakers and whip up support for the sector ahead of another season. 

But the global pandemic put the in-person version of these festivities on hold for many years, and a plan originally scheduled to take place in 2019 was put off. This year, it has come to fruition, culminating in a major upgrade for National Ag day that included a two day demonstration of the technologies of Modern Agriculture on the National Mall. 

This week, we’re joined by DTN Progressive Farmer editor in chief Greg Horstmeier, who not only attended the events in that nation's capitol this week, but has spent much time over the last three years planning them. We’ll hear about the vision, how the events worked out, and how they might set the tone for an uncertain year.
