Agriculture Commissioner Mike Strain took questions from the media Tuesday after filing to run for reelection at the Secretary of State’s Office. Strain discussed a variety of issues from climate change to trade deal with China. Strain says some of the issues Louisiana farmers are now seeing is the ability to grow crops in a latitude further north than the crops’ typical for the area.
