RealAg Radio, August 28: Ontario crop conditions, lygus bugs in fababeans, and busting sprayer myths


Agronomic Monday edition of RealAg Radio, hosted by Shaun Haney — highlights:

  • The Money Fight – Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Conor McGregor;
  •  Peter Johnson joins Kelvin to discuss winter wheat/barley harvest, heat accumulation (or lack thereof), reported ground frosts, and worries of drought in Ontario;
  • Tom Wolf and Jason Deveau talk about their Sprayer Myths series, covering everything from sprayer speeds to boom height. It’s a fun, energetic segment that you will definitely want to check out;
  • Dr. Hector Carcamo talks lygus bugs and how they move into crops such as fababeans after the canola is harvested. We don’t always think of lygus bugs in pulse crops, but this is some information you won’t want to miss;
  • Plant pathologist Albert Tenuta chats about white mould in soybeans – what is the best way to control it, and how do you avoid revenge spraying to make yourself feel better?;
