Agriculture in the Czech Republic has not had an easy road. Throughout history heavy governmental involvement made the country's agriculture industry shrink, expand and finally somewhat flourish.
Bohuslava Bouckova, a professor at the Czech University of Life Sciences, says her country has faced numerous challenges and setbacks in the past.
She says some of the main challenges today include:
  • Unfinished transformation in land ownership
  • Political changes, equaling agriculture not being a top priority
  • Overall image of agriculture in public eye
During her first visit to the United States, Bouckova, spoke at during an Agricultural Leadership of Tomorrow (ALOT) event in Columbia, Mo. Listen in as she shares her views on the current state of agriculture in the following areas:
How the Czech Republic is Attracting Younger Farmers
Organic Farming in the Czech Republic
The Agricultural Effects of the Czech Republic Joining the European Union
