RealAg Radio, April 18: Acreage Estimates, Farm Cyber Security, and Playoff Picks (Going Down in Flames?)

Ever wonder how crop analysts come up with their acreage estimates? As forecasts are finalized ahead of the StatsCan report on Friday, Dwight Nichol of DLN AgVentures joins the show today to discuss how he comes up with his numbers (including his record-breaking 22.5 million acre canola estimate). He also applies his methodology to picking this year’s Stanley Cup winner, which fans of a particular Alberta team will appreciate.

Kevin Folta of the University of Florida sits down with Kelvin to discuss why humans are seemingly bad at assessing risk when it comes to labels and marketing around the stuff we eat and drink.

Agnerd Peter Gredig joins Shaun to chat about keeping your farm’s information protected online.

And before all that, Shaun and Kelvin discuss crop progress in the U.S., mainstream attention to the so-called “dairy trade war” looming between Canada and the U.S., and the opposite emotions hockey fanbases in Calgary and Toronto are experiencing.

Listen to RealAg Radio every weekday afternoon at 4pm eastern on Rural Radio Channel 147 on SiriusXM.
