This Tuesday’s “Dan Rather Reports” will provide the latest information on a proposed land deal in which Iowa-based Agrisol Energy was planning to partner with Iowa State University to purchase and develop over 800,000 acres of land in Western Tanzania. The land would be used to farm corn and soy.
Since our story first aired in September of last year, it has been stirring controversy in Iowa and beyond. Critics have labeled Agrisol’s plan as little more than a “land-grab” that will displace the 125,000+ refugees who call that land their home.
As “Dan Rather Reports” continues to follow this story, the program will report the most recent changes to Agrisol’s plan, Tuesday, February 21 at 8:00 p.m. ET with an encore presentation at 11:00 p.m. ET.
For more information on “Dan Rather Reports” or for a screener of the original September report, please contact Colette Carey, Director of Media and PR, HDNet, (303) 542-5576.
