He is passionate about taking on some of today’s toughest challenges in agriculture: improving the quality of the state’s water and soil resources. He sees a future landscape less reliant on annual row-crops like corn and soybean, and is focused on the perennial, intermediate wheatgrass or Kernza. Dr. Jungers talks with David and Seth about the challenges of making a new crop profitable for Minnesota farmers and how they are starting to utilize it today.
