Imperato/Behm Campaign Reinforces Support for Adam Putnam as Commissioner of Agriculture. Urges Acti


Team Imperato endorsed Congressman Adam Putnam for Agriculture Commissioner largely because of his willingness to establish a small farm advisory council, which will help ensure that priorities of small farmers are included within the policy debate and to facilitate discussion on small farm policy. If able to add his voice to the advisory council, Behm would urge that sweet sorghum be grown more in Florida as a replacement to corn to develop ethanol.


[USPRwire, Wed Sep 22 2010] Karl Behm set out from Pomona Park, FL to stump for Team Imperato as the 40-day, 40-night campaign for Governor/Lt. Governor got underway.

Behm’s credentials as a farmer, plus his family background in criminal justice, solidified his selection as Lt. Governor candidate. Now he will be addressing voters throughout the state to advocate for the agricultural plank of the 2010 platform.

“The farming and industrial center of Florida is critical to our state’s economic viability and long-term stability. We are committed to an intensified agricultural commitment for a greener planet. We recommend sweet sorghum to be grown in Florida as a possible replacement to corn to develop ethanol. And we are urging Congressman Adam Putnam to join our call.” urged Behm.

Putnam is running for Commissioner of Agriculture and was endorsed by Independent Daniel Imperato before Behm joined the team. As Commissioner, Putnam promises to increase the focus on policies that impact small farmers. He intends to help reduce current barriers for small and start-up farms. Additionally, he will promote farmer’s markets and other venues for locally grown products throughout Florida.

Team Imperato endorsed Adam largely because of his willingness to establish a small farm advisory council, which will help ensure that priorities of small farmers are included within the policy debate and to facilitate discussion on small farm policy. If able to add his voice to the advisory council, Behm would urge that sweet sorghum be grown more in Florida as a replacement to corn to develop ethanol.

Behm reminded voters the benefits of sorghum, “the stalks can be used as a source of clean, renewable energy. Very little water is needed to survive droughts, and hardly any pesticides or fertilizers are needed to produce a high-stalk yield.”

Behm is continuing his piece of the campaign throughout the lake region surrounding the Ocala National Forest for the remainder of this week.
