Stan Morris | NEA Report

JONESBORO, Ark. – An opinion article by Jonesboro Sun Editor Chris Wessel calls on the State of Arkansas to ban the farming practice of burning exhausted crop due to the health complications caused by the common Fall practice.

The opinion piece, first published in Sunday’s edition of the Jonesboro Sun, was shared publicly via Facebook on Monday morning.

I say the farmers need to be forced to stop burning their rice fields and compromising everyone’s health. – Chris Wessel, Jonesboro Sun
