Farm Progress America, June 15, 2017

Max Armstrong shares an interesting source of farm workers for U.S. producers

If you asked a farmer where his immigrant labor comes from, you might be surprised by the answer. Max Armstrong shares information about the rising need for farm labor and how producers are looking outside U.S. borders because local workers either don't want the work, or they're not qualified. They're using the H-2A program.

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.
