RealAg Radio, Nov 2: Wheat Pete, the Advance Payments Program and TPP sans America

Well, the last inning was played in the World Series, and the snow has fallen in western Canada. Host Shaun Haney reflects on the abrupt changes, after a hasty trip to New York City. Then, in the show:

  • Top Ag News – U.S. President Donald Trump back to talking tough on trade deals; optimism around the Trans-Pacific Partnership (11) (and wouldn’t it be interesting if it went ahead without the U.S.?); Bank of Canada makes an odd statement about analysis around the North American Free Trade Agreement (or lack thereof); Bill C-49 clears third reading in the House of Commons; Manitoba farm groups making significant progress in potential amalgamation; Dicamba drift update; Saskatchewan Pulse Growers issue license of varieties outside of the province; increasing competition in world grain marketing; and an update on the latest estimates on yields from the U.S.
  • Dave Gallant, director of finance and operations at the Canadian Canola Growers Association, talks about the Advance Payments Program.
  • Wheat Pete’s Word – host (and resident agronomist with RealAgriculture) Peter Johnson talks corn yields and quality considerations, wet feet in winter wheat, horsetail control, dairy manure and much more. Don’t forget, you can always send in your agronomy questions to Johnson (1-844-540-2014, @wheatpete, or [email protected]) and tune in to the Word to hear his response.
