About The Show

Tune in for Agriculture of America! The all new AoA is hosted by veteran farm broadcaster Mike Pearson. Tune in each weekday for a conversation about everything agriculture. We discuss ag policy, trade, markets, ag weather and much more!

Agriculture of America is a continuation of the popular Adams on Agriculture program hosted by longtime farm broadcaster Mike Adams, before his retirement in December 2021. AoA is produced by the American Ag Radio Network.


Mike Pearson was born and raised in South Central Iowa, where he grew to love agriculture on his family’s hog and cattle farm.

After graduating from Simpson College, Mike moved to Grinnell, Iowa where he had the chance to build his own cow herd in addition to working as an agricultural lender.

Over the next 10 years, Mike left the world of finance and entered the world of media. He’s previously hosted “Market to Market” on Public Television, the Ag News Daily podcast, and currently, viewers can find him behind the anchor desk on “This Week In Agribusiness” with Max Armstrong and Orion Samuelson, which can be found on RFD TV or hundreds of local stations each weekend.
