AgweekTV takes you along as a group of North Dakota farmers gets a firsthand look at what happens to their crops as they head West.

The North Dakota Soybean Council's ‘See For Yourself’ program recently took a group of North Dakota farmers to the west coast to get a closer look at ag in that part of the country.

Agweek went along for a look at how bio-diesel from soybeans is used to power an entire city's transportation system. (The trip was taken courtesy of the North Dakota Soybean Council and the Soybean Checkoff.)
