RealAg Radio, Jan 19: Secretary Perdue, Wheat Pete's Word, and a Pea Plant


We’ve finally got an American Secretary of Agriculture named, Manitoba gets a pea processing facility, and Wheat Pete talks corn stalks, corn husks, and manure spreading on snow no-nos — and that’s just a part of what you’ll hear on this January 19th edition of RealAg Radio.

Co-host Shaun Haney is joined by Ontario field editor Lyndsey Smith to discuss what we know about Sonny Perdue III, who was just named Secretary of Agriculture by president-elect Donald Trump, and why Portage la Prairie, Manitoba, was chosen over 39 other sites to host the just-announced Roquette pea processing plant. That, and much more, including where canola acres are headed for the west, and why the east needs wheat.
