Puerto Rico Locally Grown

In this Sept. 19, 2016 photo, rice farm worker Jonathan Rodriguez manages the irrigation system at Fraternity Farm in Lajas Valley in Guanica, Puerto Rico. The rice venture is one of about 350 farms that the government supported to reduce the island's reliance on expensive food imports, as well as spur growth in the sector that dominated the economy until the 1950s, when the territory began a decades-long transformation into a more urban, developed society where few wanted to work on a farm.
