Making Crops Sustainable at the Food and Farming Conference
This year is the first the conference was held in Fargo
FARGO, N.D. — Farmers are learning how to make their crops more sustainable at the annual Northern Plains Food and Farming Conference.
This year marks the first time the conference has come to Fargo after being held in Aberdeen, South Dakota.
Producers from North and South Dakota, as well as northwestern Minnesota, attend workshops and classes to learn about new food technology.
The conference’s organizer says farmers can learn something new each year.
“We have new information all the time about regeneration and we have some courses that are brand new about regenerating and raising poultry and crops at the same time and making more money to make them profitable,” said Les Miller, the Chairman of the Northern Plains Sustainable Agriculture Society.
The conference continues until Sunday and will feature courses on sustainable agriculture throughout the weekend.
