RealAg Radio, June 12: Pork Expo, planter design & estimating wheat yields


It’s Monday and that means we have an agronomy theme on today’s show, hosted by Kelvin Heppner (Shaun Haney is away this week):

  • Rick Bergmann, chair of the Canadian Pork Council, on the discussions surrounding trade and NAFTA negotiation at the World Pork Expo in Des Moines, as well as the PED outbreak in his home province;
  • Southwest Manitoba farmer Frank Prince on his innovative planter design;
  • Corn School episode with Illinois agronomist Ken Ferrie on attributes of profitable corn growers;
  • Wheat School episodes with Peter Johnson on estimating wheat yield in-season, and Breanne Tidemann of AAFC on harvest weed seed control research.
