For the 26th year, the North Dakota Grain Growers Association is hosting Environmental Protection Agency officials from Washington D.C. The 12 participants will visit a variety ag businesses and farms to learn about environmental stewardship in the state. NDGGA Executive Director Dan Wogsland says the E-Tour helps establish a dialog with the EPA. “It helps them better understand agricultural practices and the implications of regulations,” says Wogsland. “There have been some direct impacts to label language in pesticide usage that have resulted from the E-Tour. Also, by getting a first-hand look at the Prairie Pothole Region, they can understand what excessive regulations would mean in terms of crop production.” The tour is open to the public and a full itinerary is available at ndgga.com/events.
