Max Armstrong offers insight on hot topics that can challenge farm communities

Max Armstrong reports on issues that divide communities from school consolidation to landfill locations. A new issue is the citing of solar farms on farmland. Solar developers are offering money year-after-year may be good for younger farm owners, but others don't want those panels on quality farmland. Max points to comments by Tom Bechman, Indiana Prairie Farmer, about how to properly debate tough topics.

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.
