Albert Lea Seed House to send soybeans to Afghanistan


ALBERT LEA, Minn. (KTTC) -- Minnesota soybean farmers are preparing to send soybeans to Afghan farmers.

Department of Defense planes will fly more than 2,500 bushels from Minnesota to Afghanistan.

Minnesota soybean farmers met at the Albert Lea Seed House Friday to prepare the shipment. The work is part of the USDA-supported Soybeans for Agricultural Renewal in Afghanistan project.

The Albert Lea Seed House will join the World Initiative for Soy in Human Health and Shelter for Life International to help distribute the seeds to 5,000 farmers in Afghanistan.
