UDaily: Farmers, growers talk about challenges facing the agriculture industry

Members of the University of Delaware community, as well as regional farmers and growers, gathered Thursday, Oct. 1, at the Trabant University Center Theatre to view the documentary Farmland and listen to a panel discussion from industry experts about challenges facing the agriculture industry. The panel discussion and the documentary screening were hosted by the Alpha Gamma Rho fraternity with the panel discussion moderated by Weber Stibolt, a senior majoring in food science in UD’s College of Agriculture and Natural Resources (CANR).  The panelists all agreed that the movie showed an accurate depiction of what it’s like to be a farmer in America and touched on the different aspects associated with farming.
