From vast wheat fields on the eastern plains and cattle grazing on lush mountain pastures to plump fruit in Western Slope orchards and chili peppers basking in the Pueblo sun, Colorado's agricultural landscape is endless.

Corn Growers Support Higher Bar for Constitutional Amendments

PROMO Colorado Corn

By Dave Eckhardt
Colorado Corn Growers Association president

With the changing demographics in our rapidly growing state, there are now fewer and fewer people who know our rural, agrarian heritage.

Couple that with our constitution being the third-easiest of all states to amend through the petition process, and Colorado has become a playground for special interests pushing their agendas.

That can be detrimental to Colorado's $40 billion ag industry - one of the top contributors to our state's economy - and the rural communities that depend on it.
