RealAg Radio, Feb 14: Trudeau-Trump, Pod Shatter Resistance & Public Trust in Plant Technology

There’s plenty to discuss surrounding Prime Minister Trudeau’s first in-person visit with President Trump, including what the President meant when he referred to “tweaking” the Canada-U.S. trade relationship under NAFTA.

Former Agriculture Minister, now Tory trade critic, Gerry Ritz joins host Kelvin Heppner to discuss the Trudeau-Trump meeting.

From Germany, Shaun catches up with Dr. Bart Lambert, who developed the pod shatter reduction trait used in Bayer’s canola varieties.

And we wrap up today’s show with a discussion about the future of food, gene editing and how to maintain public trust when using new plant technologies with Dr. Pamela Ronald of UC Davis, one of the keynote speakers at FarmTech in Edmonton earlier this month.

As Kelvin notes, it’s also a special day today, for reasons unrelated to chocolate or flowers.

Catch RealAg Radio tomorrow at 3pm central from CropConnect in Winnipeg on Rural Radio Channel 147 on SiriusXM!
