Kansas Farmers Feeding The World

Associated Press - March 12, 2015 7:18 am

Another class action lawsuit has been filed against seed giant Monsanto over last month's discovery of an isolated field of genetically engineered wheat in Oregon.

The Kansas Department of Agriculture is joining with farm groups to focus public attention on the state’s role in feeding a growing global population.

National Geographic photographer Jim Richardson is headlining an event March 18 at Kansas State University’s Union Little Theatre with a visual journal that aims to highlight the topic “Feeding a Hungry Planet.” The program is part of the state’s celebrations of Kansas Agriculture Month.

A group of Kansas agriculture experts will follow Richardson’s lecture to talk about the state’s agricultural industry. Kansas is the nation’s biggest producer wheat and grain sorghum.
