Prepare to Grow! Agriculture is Nebraska's number one industry, and now NTV brings viewers a weekly look at the latest in farming and ranching.
NTV's Grow will debut Sunday night at 10:35 p.m., following NTV News.
Marylyn Barnett and Steve White will host the weekly program. Plus Kent Boughton will have a special weather almanac.
Before launching the show, NTV went to the experts.
Central Nebraska crop and livestock producers told NTV not to shy away from tough issues like immigration, water policy, and animal welfare.
Expect a mix of hot issues, as well as features like the Farm Family of the Month, Ag Innovations, Farm Youth of the Month, and market reports.
Each week will also feature in-depth interviews with news makers. The debut broadcast will include an exclusive interview with Gov. Dave Heineman as well as a conversation about including beef in the diet.
The show premieres Sunday night after the 10:00 news. In addition, it will be broadcast in HD, NTV's first regular broadcast in high definition.
