ADT Team Works with Afghanistan Farmers

U.S. Army Sgt. Tanner Ruble, a military policeman with the Iowa National Guard's 734th Agri-Business Development Team of the Iowa National Guard, provides security as U.S. Air Force Staff Sgt. Bennett Groth, production agriculture specialist for the ADT, speaks through an interpreter to Mohammed Ismael, manager of the Salar Bagh Demonstration Farm, Sept. 21, 2010. The farm is owned and operated by the government of Kunar Province near Asadabad, Afghanistan. The soldier and airman were part of a mission to assess the farm, which produces corn, soybeans, tea and locust trees for timber. The ADT found the demonstration farm to be superbly run and the farm manager to have a high degree of agricultural expertise, leading the ADT to focus on methods of transferring the farm manager's skill-set to farmers throughout the province.
