There's been plenty of buzz about new technology in agriculture, but what has that wrought?

In this week's episode of Around Farm Progress Mindy Ward, editor of Missouri Ruralist, shares the story of one startup that has opened a new headquarters and is working with farmers across the country to bring its tools to market. She talked with one farmer who has planted new high-oleic soybeans and shares what she learned.

Mindy then quizzes the podcast host about a recent trip he took to visit a significant new startup in agriculture just before it's full-size manufacturing plant goes online. Willie Vogt has followed Anuvia since 2016 and offers insight into this innovative fertilizer technology that adds carbon back into the soil and provides a new way to put waste to work on the farm.
