16% of farmer respondents answered "What are the major challenges you faced in implementing the sustainable agricultural practices you have tried?" with "Lack of the appropriate training opportunities."
Farmers found several impediments in implementing sustainable agricultural practices: Lack of experience (49%), current farm policy (43%), lack of knowledge (35%), lack of external funding (25%), difficulty in finding information (24%), social pressure (22%), and the practices didn't work (2%).
Quite often the projects funded [by the MFB Foundation] will be cooperative ones developed by Farm Bureau, commodity organizations and others in agriculture. The Foundation will also fund projects that help develop new leaders for agriculture and help farm families improve their management and marketing skills.
