A listening session on the upcoming Farm Bill will take place Feb. 14 at the World Ag Expo in Tulare, Calif.

House Agriculture Committee Chairman Rep. GT Thompson, R-PA, and committee member Rep. David Valadao, R-CA, are the only two currently confirmed to attend, though invitations to the bipartisan members of the committee have reportedly been sent.

The listening session will run from 10 a.m. to noon in the banquet hall of the Heritage Complex. It is expected that various agricultural groups from throughout California that represent a host of specialty crops will be there.

A World Ag Expo spokesperson said the event will also be livestreamed.
