Farm Progress America - February 21, 2017

Max Armstrong explores a court decision that solidifies a legal precedent protecting farmers under the Clean Water Act.

Max Armstrong looks at the new court decision in the farmer's favor when they were sued by the Des Moines Water district that wanted farmers to pay for cleanup of nitrates in drinking water. However, Max notes that the fight isn't over yet since there's still a federal judgment to be heard in the case.

Farm Progress America is a daily look at key issues in agriculture. It is produced and presented by Max Armstrong, veteran farm broadcaster and host of This Week in Agribusiness.
