Congressman Crawford at ASU for Farm Tour

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT)- Congressman Rick Crawford was at Arkansas State University today in Jonesboro as a part of his role in the Farm Tour.

Crawford and his staff visited the College of Agriculture and Tech Biodiesel and Plant Lab.

Congressman Crawford says, "This is a scaled down version, really not that scaled down, of what could actually be down on the farm to help offset their costs for fuel consumption and then derive additional value added income off of the by products of things like soybeans."

Crawford also says he was impressed with what Dr. Kevin Humphrey was accomplishing in the lab with ASU students.

Congressman Crawford says he wants to bring his Ag council back and have them see what's taking place at the biodiesel and plant lab.
