Young Farmers Gathering In Manhattan

KSAL StaffJanuary 21, 2015
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.

More than 500 young farmers are expected to gather in Manhattan this week for the annual Kansas Farm Bureau Young Farmers and Ranchers leaders conference.

The three-day event kicks off Friday with various competitions, while the opening keynote address on Saturday will focus on genetically engineered crops. Workshops throughout the day also include information about crop insurance, farm data, water and the state Legislature.

The event is being held at the Manhattan Conference Center at the Hilton Garden Inn.
