Remembering more favorite stories from 2020

Around Farm Progress Podcast features favorite or top stories from 2020, and for some it's hard to pick just one

Happy New Year! We're wrapping up 2020 with a little look back on some favorite stories or hot topics from last year that could be something to watch in 2021.

First up, Shelley Huguley, Southwest Farm Press, refuses to be held to just one of her favorites, so she picks three. What she shares is fun, informative and heartfelt.

Jennifer Kiel, American Agriculturist, offers a discussion about regenerative agriculture, which started with a story she did in 2020 and expects to keep following this year. She notes that for the idea to succeed regenerative agriculture must offer one feature – profit for the farmer.

And Tom Bechman, Indiana Prairie Farmer, talks agriculture technology. He shares what he learned getting a look at new tools and discusses automation, safety and even some ideas on future university research.
