Follow up: Attend a screening of Farmer, Rancher, Fisherman at K-State

Join the Department of Agronomy November 16 at 6 p.m. in Engineering Hall 1109 to watch Rancher, Farmer, Fisherman.

The film stars K-State Agronomy alumnus, Justin Knopf, who spoke at the fall meeting with Dr. Chuck Rice, university distinguished professor of agronomy and recipient of the Mary L. Vanier University Professorship.

Rancher, Farmer, Fisherman tells the inspiring story of heartland heroes who are feeding the world while stewarding the land and water. The film is a tribute to people like Justin Knopf, a fifth-generation Kansas farmer revolutionizing industrial scale agriculture to rebuild the fertility, biodiversity and resilience of his soils and protect downstream waters from pollution. Knopf is making long-term investments to ensure that the next generations of farmers will inherit fertile, productive lands.
