Farmers discuss agricultural issues

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT)

The 2010 Arkansas Soil and Water Education Conference took place at Arkansas State University's Convocation Center.

More than one hundred and fifty people were there to listen to experts on a variety of different agricultural issues.

Participants like Steve Green say this event allows farmers to gather together and compare notes on different problems farmers in this area face, "We have times during the year where we lack the sufficient water to draw our crops. So, we pump a lot of ground water for irrigation. That ground water level continues to deplete and eventually that is going to become a serious problem for us."

This is the 11th year that this conference has been held at ASU.
