(Stanton) -- KMA Ag Services Director Dean Adkins regularly takes his microphone and video camera to locations all across KMAland to talk with people about issues affecting agriculture.
Earlier this week Adkins stopped by the farm of Mark Peterson a mile west of Stanton. Peterson farms with his wife Melanie and his five sons. Peterson is a lifelong farmer and like many family farmers, has been a long-time proponent of being a good steward of the land.
One of Peterson's passions is conservation through a variety of cover crops. You can view a video explanation of Peterson's cover crop philosophy in the video below.
