The 80th Annual National Association of Farm Broadcasting is underway in Kansas City, Missouri and we've been able to sit down with the who's who in the ag industry this week.

POET started out in Scotland, South Dakota in 1987 with a single processing facility. 36 years later, it's the world's largest producer of biofuel and of the leaders in bioproducts. It's now located in Sioux Falls with 34 bioprocessing facilities across the Midwest.

I was able to speak with Doug Berven, Vice President of Corporate Affairs with POET. In the interview, Doug spoke about the potential of agriculture to feed the entire world, POET's partnership with SDSU and South Dakota Mines, and the future of bioprocessing in an ever-changing world.

Check out the interview with Doug Berven in the audio clip below.
