The Senior Policy Director at the Missouri Soybean Association says the state’s soybean farmers want to see state legislation passed that would protect the privacy of farmers who irrigate their crops.

Casey Wasser tells Brownfield major water users are required to report to the Missouri Department of Natural Resources and this bill would keep some information from being released to the public.

“We’re going to try and pass legislation to restrict how much data the DNR can release about one specific farmer and his or her operation,” says Wasser.
