CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - The head of one of South Carolina's major agricultural operations is in the nation's capital to discuss how labor shortages are affecting farming.

Chalmers Carr, the president and CEO of Titan Farms in Ridge Spring joins growers from across the nation Tuesday at the National Press Club in Washington.

Carr will appear with farmers from Texas, California and Colorado at an event sponsored by the Partnership for a New American Economy. The discussion coincides with the release of a report on how labor shortages are increasing the nation's dependence on imported fresh produce and slowing economic growth.

The Partnership for a New American Economy is a bipartisan group of mayors and business leaders from across the nation seeking immigration reform.
