Program: Tom Farms, Kyle Tom – Farming in Leesburg since 1837. Tom Farms is the largest seed corn producer for Monsanto in the United States. They are also a soy bean producer, all of these go to Louis Dreyfus. Corn yields have grown over the years from 72 bushel per acre to over 220 bushel per acre. Since 1960 the percentage of the population involved in agriculture has decreased from 7.3% to 1.6%, there is a dramatic need for more workers in this field.
