RealAgriculture and Peter Johnson are pleased to announce they have joined forces, and Peter will now take on the title of resident agronomist for the company.

Already a fixture of the Wheat School, Peter recently launched a weekly crop update, Wheat Pete’s Word, available both online and through a phone-in service, hosted by RealAgriculture. Peter will also be featured in the Corn and Soybean Schools.

After closing out a 30-year career as an extension specialist in Ontario, Peter wasn’t ready to stop working with farmers. “I want Ontario agriculture to be the best it can be. I wanted to continue to have a way to reach farmers and for them to reach me and this partnership with RealAgriculture achieves that,” says Johnson.

“Over the years, countless farmers have benefited from Peter’s knowledge, shared with such enthusiasm and energy, and we’re so proud to be playing a role in continuing that tradition with Wheat Pete’s Word,” says Lyndsey Smith, editor of RealAgriculture.

Peter, as always, is accessible through Twitter as @WheatPete, or you can ask a question or leave a comment at 1-844-540-2014 and listen each Wednesday for a new edition of the Word.
