U.S. Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue is on a West Coast tour.

On Tuesday (Feb. 13), he visited the World Ag Expo in Tulare, answering questions during a Town Hall. He then spoke with GV Wire, for the latest in our “Take 5” series.

Among the subjects Perdue discussed:

  • The future of NAFTA.
  • His thoughts on impending immigration bills and ensuring a reliable farm workforce.
  • Delivering on the Trump campaign’s promise for more water to Valley farmers.
  • Regulations that he says should be repealed.
  • And, his surprising answer as to who has better peaches: his home state of Georgia or Fresno County (where it is a Top 10 crop).
