Max Armstrong looks at risks to the U.S. food supply from imported diseases

Max Armstrong shares some insight on what it takes to keep diseases out of the U.S. ag industry. Max got the insight from a visit from recent with friends who brought plants into the country and weren’t searched. Paul Sundberg, executive director, Swine Health Information Center, shared comments recently that the ag industry moves fast and that’s a challenge; but he offers support for the idea of partnerships that provide rapid risk assessment.

Farm Progress America is a daily look at key issues in agriculture. It is produced and presented by Max Armstrong, veteran farm broadcaster and host of This Week in Agribusiness.
