N.C. Farm Bureau Meeting Harvests Rural Concerns

GREENSBORO, N.C. -- North Carolina's largest farm organization is looking back on the year's harvests and looking ahead to policies affecting agriculture next year.

The North Carolina Farm Bureau meets for its 74th annual meeting in Greensboro beginning Sunday.

The group that says it represents the interests of half a million of the state's farm families hears Monday from Republican U.S. Sen. Richard Burr, Democratic U.S. Rep. Brad Miller and Georgia Republican Sen. Saxby Chambliss.

Gov. Bev Perdue speaks at the Farm Bureau convention on Tuesday.

NCFB president Larry Wooten said rural communities are facing unprecedented challenges from urbanization.

The group's top interests include water quality and supply, renewable energy and transportation regulations.
