If you’re in a rural area, there’s a good chance that agriculture is one of the most important topics you can deliver to readers. But where do you start? And how do you keep coming up with relevant ideas?

Al Cross from the Institute for Rural Journalism and Community Issues talks about strategies for community papers to attack agricultural issues.

Cross is director of the Institute for Rural Journalism and Community Issues, based at the University of Kentucky. He publishes The Rural Blog, Kentucky Health News and the Midway Messenger. He was a reporter at The Courier-Journal in Louisville for 26 years, the last 15½ as the newspaper’s chief political writer. He was national president of the Society of Professional Journalists in 2001-02. His awards include SPJ’s top award, the Wells Memorial Key, and the Kentucky Journalism Hall of Fame.
