Meet the Farmers
Kansas is the top state for growing and storing wheat.
Q: How much pesticide is used on crops?
A: On one acre (about the size of a football field), the amount of pesticide used is about the same as your morning cup of coffee.
“Do your homework and know what you are getting yourself into. (Farming) is not for the faint of heart. You’ve got to have a passion for it." (Lowell Neitzel)
2016 was a record year for Kansas corn. We produced 699 million bushels, topping the previous record set in 2009 by 17 percent!
