Bobbi’s Corner

We are pleased to be able to offer you a selection of articles on Southwest agriculture penned by our very own “Miss Bobbi” (Roberta Stevenson-McDermott). Miss Bobbi is a soil specialist retired from the USDA Natural Resource Conservation Service. She currently is an active advocate for SW Agriculture, writes for the Yuma Sun and in her spare time you will find her with a rod and reel at the nearest fishing hole!
