Audio-MIDDAY Midwest Digest, April 22, 2019

Max Armstrong talks about Earth Day, new leadership for a food company, E15 comments and planting progress impacted by rain.

Today is Earth Day, but for most farmers, every day is Earth Day.

Kraft-Heinz is getting new leadership.

It's the final week to comment on the E15 proposal. 

Farmers are straining to get in the field, but rain is preventing planting right now in the Upper Midwest. And growers are reminded to not plant before it's time to prevent compaction, among other things.
