Webinar: Rural Journalism -- Tracking Agriculture
If you're in a rural area, there's a good chance that agriculture is one of the most important topics you can deliver to readers. But where do you start? And how do you keep coming up with relevant ideas? Al Cross from the Institute for Rural Journalism and Community Issues talks about strategies for community papers to attack agricultural issues.
