"Worker protection, standard aspects of. farms of business owners being able to. To. Work through those processes of keeping workers, safe and probably cease in Samak. Say Types of things in there now to what level we come some of that question. You know is it is it to the point of Being able to be reimbursed for increase. Cost of labor is it simply buying equipment is at retro fitting lines in order to to keep workers safe i. think those are all the types of things that are being discussed and in the process of things today and and kind of kind of continuing to wait to see what what works its way through. The legislative process of getting from the two concepts that are out there today to to what ends up crossing the finish. Line. In your opinion do you think? By the time. Actually just rewinding that first cares act in the see fat program that was a result of that I. It took many weeks to actually get the details on on how that money would be allocated in what crops. In commodities would be Co qualifying for that program. Do you think since that was ironed out a little more and changes were made for cross being included in that I see fab round of funding that will actually see a bit faster of a process and actually getting the second possible round the fat out to help producers. You think it'll be a little more quick since they actually took their time and and try to get those details ironed out a little more. you know I think that would be would be safe to say if you assume that it's just additional money thrown into the same pot i. haven't I haven't seen exactly what direction the Senate is is looking to go at this point You know again if it's if it's simply that we're continuing C-PAP with annexed. A second period of time that people are eligible I would you know you probably would assume that that a lot of those same rules that USDA would would put in place would would stay in place if Congress make some changes in what that needs to look like along the way that certainly could could either slow the time period for them to to rewrite rules or it could you know. In Essence Rewrite the rules itself from Congress. Needs to. Go. Well. It's a very, very interesting time for all producers but as I say every podcast, I just think the national potato. Council. Their in Washington DC and all volunteer leaders for continuing to step up to the plate to advocate for the industry and work on these very, very complex issues. But Mike. I think I'm going to ask the hardest question of the day. What is your favorite potato dish I? Know you probably can't this narrow down to one you probably have a lot but boy what is your favorite potato dish and that's a that's a pretty tough one you know Starting in the industry in Michigan which is pretty heavy on the potato chip side. I'll just I'll rounded out saying potato chips. And not dive into a brand. Well I. WanNa thank you for giving an honor honest from the heart answer their. God, you didn't know what was going to throw a hardball at you here in the in the palm, you can I didn't it Wasn't too bad. I said. I. In working in DC.

Let you get back to your day out in Washington. DC..

"Well, you know we it's been interesting because we have a lot of research projects that happen during the summer when the crops going and Being able to Have a field day in view them as become a challenge so we're trying to do it in. Smaller groups where we can actually get out and look at what's taking place and getting some information back So that's one thing that we're focused on right now and then. You know we had a we usually have a potato festival in September. That people come from statewide, attend and. Where we actually had to cancel it but we're trying to do kind of substitute, potato giveaway and. Maybe serve a baked potato as a drive through event I. I'm not sure exactly our gonNA, work at. Cases in Colorado of kind of been on the upturned again. So trying to be real cognizant of that and careful. you know one thing I do want to say is you know I think people have found out this year that you know agriculture definitely is essential to everyone everyone eats and we all need a good. Food Supply that we can count on and I think eggs come through big time for that. And You know I I kinda get tired of that. We're all in this together thing, but it is true. We just have to be optimistic make the best of any situation whether it be pandemic or hailstorm or whatever happened. So that would be my message. Well, thanks for those encouraging words. We all are in this together, and for all of our listeners out there I want to thank them for for tuning and learning more about. All the changes that have had to take place to hold events whether that'd be virtually or or whatnot but crop still need to be planted and harvested, and of course, research to help enhance the industry still needs to take place. So I'm glad to hear that some of those smaller field days are are still occurring down in Colorado, but again, Jim Erlich again, thank you so much for taking time out of your schedule to to talk about The the adjustments had.

"They don't have to, and they also want to take advantage of the beneficial insects that we have in our environment to help control pass. And so those are the kind of things that we were going to focus on but we also try to you know, let them have some fine water to and. So we'll have the opportunity to, Xm we're really looking forward to that and they think based on. The success that this year's virtual meeting had. That we'll probably do some kind of a hybrid approach we may have. Some virtual component to what we do next summer too because we were able to have. I think might told me that they had like as many as a hundred sixty people. On the virtual meeting with normally or one, hundred, hundred ten logged in once and you know when we hosted in person, you know I think redid it several years ago and had around twenty. So, if we can reach that many more people, that's really important we to be able to do that. And what would your message be to all the industry partners that make up the National Title Council on the importance of taking these opportunities virtual or not to have engagement with the decision makers in a state capital around Washington DC. Yeah No, it's extremely important. You know these these folks are back in Washington DC for the most part and they don't you know I. Don't WanNa say they'll know what? How far merely functions because that's unfair. But a lot of them really haven't had firsthand experience with a farm. And so you know. Getting to know someone in a personal basis really helps and it gives them an an opportunity to ask questions if they have that only growers know the answer to, and so I think it's really it's critical that we have that interaction and it's well worth the growers time to attend this kind of thing and take advantage of. Opportunity to tell your story and agriculture we really need to do a better job of doing that..
"federal agency" Discussed on Eye on Potatoes: A Podcast on All Things Potatoes
"And you're having a wonderful day wise and We've been extremely dry this year, but we've had some rain about the last ten days without any of the. Associated, bad things that come with that. So We're doing well, really walk. Well, that's good to hear and obviously the agency tour that is the focus of our conversation on the podcast today was actually supposed to be in your neck of the woods unfortunately due to covid nineteen the event had to go virtual but for you in the committee and for all of the potato industry here in the United, states, how important is it to have these interactions with agency officials in really share? The information that the industry goes through on a face to face or a screen to screen interaction like we had to do here in twenty twenty. Yeah no I think it's extremely important we look at working with the EPA is a partnership because We really need the crop protection chemicals that they give us to work with. And it's very sponsor ability to make sure they're safe and that all the testing has been done. So we need to be on the same page with them so they can make decisions and give us the tools we need. And this time around the EPA was able to in other agencies including USDA to participate. They watch these produced videos that that are very informative about all aspects of whether it'd be a be chemicals whether it be other issues that the EPA may regulate. What exactly did you talk about in your address to these agency officials? Well we had a couple of different focuses that we. Were asked to cover and one of them was Kind of introduced Colorado, the production here in the major pests and diseases issues we have. And then in particular we have an issue with potato virus Y and are seat production. and. So we focused on that we did A. Video that talked about how are trying to control that in different steps that we've taken as an industry including having a certified seed law and The glove. The growers are using crop oils in different things to control. Aphids. Elfrid. Monitoring Program that. We have used for since the nineteen seventies. And So that's what we focused on. We had a little bit of a small segment on seed cutting but. was kind of hard to put that together because we did you know the seat had already been cut last spring and we didn't really have the opportunity to show it up close and personal like we would have liked to. Now, obviously, as as we keep reiterating, this had to be a virtual or if it would not have been a virtual to were what? What was the tour GonNa look like this this year and and I do believe that they're going to try and actually have the agency to her back in Colorado next year in person. But what was that going to look like and what interaction with these agency officials have when they have the opportunity to be boots on the ground and Colorado? Yeah you know we were really excited to host it. It's it's an enjoyable event What we were going to try to show them with some of the same things we talked about in the virtual meeting but basically, we're we're going to get him out on the farm and show them. The steps, it takes to grow potato crop and different crop. Protection Chemicals we use and interact with crop consultants in areas, sprayer and also chemical applicators to show them you know..
"federal agency" Discussed on Eye on Potatoes: A Podcast on All Things Potatoes
"To to try to get our input into the process earlier, and so those are a few of the things that we're working on obviously having some of these for future EPA tours, agency tours, these videos he's presentations could come into could be beneficial as well as we continue to look at those opportunities for discussion, but but at the end of the. Day, it's GONNA come down to to those relationships and and I think you know from a from a standing up potatoes here in DC being able to have a hundred plus people from from EPA understanding those issues and concerns of potato farms is is really a big part of of what we we we were successful hopefully doing as we worked with with EPA. Put this on my Giovanni, last thoughts on the agency tour. Again, I. You know making sure that those people engaged in in registration process or re-registration process really have an understanding of the industry just is so important and so we're we're actively in the planning stages again for going to Colorado Nick Summer for a group of people from from the agencies. And you know the things that we really are trying to do is help them see how seeds precede pieces are treated having an understanding of how the equipment and the processes are used as it relates to those chemistries and You know just really really trying to to build that relationship really becomes the the biggest parts of the process. Well Mike stay with us. We are going to check in with Jim Erlich executive.

"A new executive order from president trump will at federal agencies bypass some major environmental laws. The goal is to fast-track big new infrastructure projects and boost the economy which has been hit hard by the coronavirus pandemic NPR's. Jeff Brady joins US now Hello Jeff. Hello What does this executive order do? Well? It directs federal agencies to expedite construction of transportation energy infrastructure. We're talking about things like highways, oil and gas pipelines and and coal export terminals, usually those are when those proposed there these long approval processes under the national environmental policy. ACT IT gives people a chance to see how the project might affect them and weigh in with opinions on what decision the government should make, and if a project somehow affects an endangered animal or Or Plant the endangered species act might also be involved with this order. The President says the economic crisis. The country is experiencing is an emergency. Anything's federal agency should be allowed to bypass some of those requirements, and is this something that other presidents have done? It is and I've seen record showing every president back to Ronald Reagan using this emergency authority, but only in limited circumstances say like if there's a wildfire or a hurricane or something needs to be something needs. needs to be built very quickly. One example is back in two thousand fourteen. This is during the Obama. Administration the National Park Service emergency exception to build an evacuation route at Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. They expected the existing route was going to be covered by lava within forty five days, so they said they they had to. The they still though had to involve the public in the process there was it was an emergency, but then after it was all over they. They had to go through the full Nipah process, and the concern here is that president trump has been a critic of these environmental laws all along and many were. He's using this emergency to weaken those laws without congress changing them a already. There's a proposal to speed up the National Environmental Policy Act reviews, and there have been dozens of proposals during this administration to rollback environmental regulations. There was just another today actually changed cost benefit analysis under the Clean Air Act. And what have been the response of the environmental, and and what's been the response of Environmental and industry groups to this executive order? Yeah, you know the criticism from environmental groups that came in quick this afternoon gene McCarthy She's a former EPA administrator. She now heads the Natural Resources Defense Council, and she said instead of trying to ease the pain of a nation in crisis president trump is focused on easing the pain of polluters and Arizona. Representative Row Ray, all grow hall. he chairs the Natural Resources Committee, and that he said that the net National Environmental Policy Act is, it's one of the few tools that communities of color have to protect themselves and make sure their voices are heard. Heard on federal decisions, and he says the president has compromising that here. There have been a very different reaction from industries originalist Nolan the president and CEO of the National Mining Association said this order will help jump start the economy and encourage companies to use American made materials image things like copper for wiring and coal for making steel zinc for galvanizing metals. He says that this might reverse trend of relying on imported materials and Jeff. How soon could some of these transportation or energy projects began well we have the executive order and things are probably going to start happening but there is probably going to be a legal challenge here because environmentalists think this is not lawful. That's NPR's Jeff Brady. Thanks Jeff Thank you..
