Arizona Farm Bureau president on the state’s year-round ag production

As the growing season comes to a close around much of the country, Arizona’s year-round ag production continues. Farmers and ranchers in the state are planting and harvesting throughout the region 12 months of the year.

Arizona Farm Bureau president Stefanie Smallhouse speaks with RFD-TV’s own Janet Adkison on the state’s year-round production and the challenges associated with that, as well as the effects of the West Coast wildfires.

According to Smallhouse, “Our farmers and ranchers in Arizona are planting and harvesting 12 months out of the year. We lead in the production of various type of citrus and lettuces... We also produce products, like beef, year-round. We have, actually, 300 plus days of sunshine... and our fertile soils and managed irrigation allows for multiple harvest seasons, just on one farm.”
