Perdue Agri Business Seeking Farmers To Grow Rapeseed

An agriculture company will be offering farmers the chance to grow Rapeseed this fall to supply the oil crushing plant in Trenton formerly owned by Hart Ag Strong.

Perdue Agri Business purchased Hart Ag Strong in the fall of 2019. Grower Relations Manager Jeff Riddle says the purchase will help Perdue expand their operation to Kentucky.
