Nebraska farmers are going to help rebuild a war torn country from the ground up.

A rare partnership of both Nebraska Air and Army National Guard members with agriculture background are heading to Gardez, Afghanistan to do what they do best, farm.

The unit of 60 will conduct agribusiness and training with Afghan officials so they can sustain their country on their own.

"We're farming at a fairly high level here in America and we're just going to have to step that back because they are farming in biblical terms. They are out there with oxen or an animal dragging a stick," said Bob Huttes, a farmer in Sprague.

Monday night at 10 in a Special Report, see how the farmers will keep their crops growing while they are away.
