Tyler Harris is a field editor located in the northern part of Kansas City, Missouri. From there, he covers Missouri, Kansas and Iowa. This includes interviewing farmers, attending ag events, and reporting on numerous ag-related issues. Before joining Farm Progress, Tyler got his feet wet covering agriculture and rural issues while attending the University of Iowa, taking any chance he could to get outside the city limits and get on to the farm. This included working for Kalona News south of Iowa City in the town of Kalona, followed by an internship at Wallaces Farmer in Des Moines after graduation.
Coming from a farm family in southwest Iowa, Tyler is largely interested in how issues impact people at the producer level. True to the reason he started reporting, he loves getting out of town and meeting with producers on the farm, which also gives him a first-hand look at how agriculture and urban interact.
