Fargo-Moorhead (WDAY-TV) - America is about to enter the "golden age" of agriculture.

That from an expert speaking to hundreds of soybean producers in our area, who gathered today at the Annual Northern Soybean Expo in Fargo.

Soybean Grower supported trade agreements recently has meant an additional $16-billion in soy exports to Mexico, Chile, Canada and Morocco.
