Bushel App Wins Ag Innovation Prize ~ Determining Health of Produce ~ Fargo Film Festival

Feb 28, 2018

Wednesday, February 28 – Myriad Mobile developed the app Bushel to help farmers get real-time information. The app won a $20,000 ag innovation prize. We hear from Myriad Mobile CEO Jake Joraanstad. ~~~ Local or shipped long distances, organic or conventional, fresh fruits and vegetables are packed with vitamins, minerals and other nutrients our bodies need. Farmers’ decisions can affect how healthy our food is, but Harvest Public Media’s Amy Mayer says it’s hard to measure their precise impact. ~~~ From Morning Edition, we visit the home club of the US Men’s Curling team, which took gold in South Korea. ~~~ It’s almost time for the Fargo Film Festival. It’s the largest film festival in the region. Festival Director Emily Beck is John Harris’ guest on this week’s Prairie Pulse.
