Matt Tiffany tells the story about how he and his father and his grandfather have transitioned their three-generation farm from conventional to more sustainable and regenerative farming practices.
The ongoing Ukraine invasion briefly made an appearance during a meeting of the House Ag Committee on Tuesday. The hearing primarily committed to a review of the 2018 Farm Bill as planning for the 2023 edition of the tentpole ag legislation began to materialize. The next hearing is scheduled for March 8.
A community of Indiana growers has rallied to help support one of their own who sustained life-threatening injuries in a house fire. A network of farmers said they planned to assist with the spring planting as the young farmer battles for his life.

Think the effects of the Ukraine invasion stop at the banks of the Dnieper River? Think again. Instability in that region can spread via Black Sea trading routes to impact global markets for wheat (Ukraine exports about 10 percent of the world’s supply), but also natural gas prices, particularly in Europe, (with mirror effects in U.S. markets), and food prices in the Middle East and North Africa, according to the International Food Policy Research Institute.
Geopolitics got you down? In Australia, a grower is using everyone’s favorite elementary school classroom pet to crack down on weeds. Hint: it’s not a garter snake (Sorry, Mrs. Carey).
