Texas Ag Commissioner In Amarillo

Job creation in rural Texas and promoting Texas products around the world were just a few of the topics Texas agriculture Commissioner Todd Staples covered at a luncheon Tuesday at the Amarillo Civic Center.

As part of the annual Farm and Ranch Show, Staples spoke to a full crowd at the Civic Center Grand Plaza.

Staples also covered the current state of agriculture in the panhandle area...and what could be done to improve it in the future by using new technology and value-added processing.
