A local agricultural leader thinks Hoosier farmers are setting a good example for their counterparts in India.

Tippecanoe County Farm Bureau President Kevin Underwood spent two weeks learning about Indian agriculture in the Mumbai, Bangalore, and New Delhi. He was one of about 30 farmers selected to take the trip as part of the Indiana Ag Leadership Program.

Underwood hopes the effort put forth by the program’s participants helps change the Indian society’s negative view of farmers.
