Max Armstrong shares information about how a labor shortage has caused farmers to leave crops in the field to rot in Santa Barbara County, which cost famers $13 million last year. From strawberries to field greens, farmers ended up plowing the crop back into the field.
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.
