Perdue amazed by ag technology at virtual Farm Progress Show
Ag Secretary Sonny Perdue made an appearance at the virtual Farm Progress Show Tuesday, saying he is amazed by agriculture’s technology advancements even in difficult times.
“I tell people they are the most adaptable technology people, they are innovators, they are inventors, they are creators and that is what has been responsible for this miracle of agricultural production for the last 90 years.”
And, Perdue says corn yields are nothing short of amazing, too.
“These corn yields continue to stun me. I know we had the tragic windstorm in Iowa and a little bit of Illinois but these kind of yield numbers are just remarkable.”
The virtual Farm Progress Show in Boone, Iowa, runs through Thursday.
