Video: NAAA Cohosts Modern Agriculture and Sustainability Demo Day for EPA, USDA and Congressional Officials

Last month, NAAA again teamed with the Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) and several other agribusiness organizations to cohost a field day to educate staff from the USDA, EPA and congressional offices on modern agriculture and sustainability.


The video below shows highlights from the day at Bunker Hill Farm in Newburg, Md., including an aerial liquid application demonstration by Helicopter Applicators Inc. (HAI) pilot Ben Miller from Gettysburg, Pa. Miller sprayed water from a military surplus Bell OH-58 at a rate of 10 to 15 gallons an acre. For many of those in attendance, this was the first time they had ever seen an aerial spray demonstration. 


The video includes an interview with NAAA Executive Director Andrew Moore as well as interviews with representatives from AEM, John Deere, The American Seed Trade Association and Bunker Hill Farm owner Chip Bowling.
