In this episode of HPJ Talk, Jenni and Kylene discuss their views on how the Coronavirus pandemic may change our perspective on food security, storage, and waste - as well as their thoughts about buying local produce only vs continuing to shop in stores.

Aaron Harries, VP of Research and Operations for Kansas Wheat, shares about how the annual Winter Wheat Quality Tour is moving to a virtual experience during the 2020 COVID-19 stay-at-home orders.

On the tour, you will get to observe the wheat crop in different parts of the state, as well as learn about the conditions, challenges, and ever-changing dynamics that wheat farmers face.

All that and markets too! #RideWithUs
