Keith Badger in East Central Kansas
Keith Badger, an Ottawa Coop member, grows corn and soybeans with his brother in East Central Kansas. Since Keith graduated from Kansas State University and returned to the farm full-time in the early 1980’s, a lot has changed in agriculture. For Keith, continuing to change with the industry, while also challenging the ways things have always been done, has been key. Keith’s approach to soil health, keeping both profitability and sustainability at the forefront, has been one of the most beneficial changes.
