Host Kelvin Heppner starts off today’s show talking Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s trip to India, and the agriculture community’s bated breath — will he talk pulse tariffs with officials?

Then, on the show:

  • Top Ag News – Olympics, Spitz International sunflower plant closing in Bow Island, Simplot announces potato plant expansion, former 4-H Canada president appointed to Senate, and online food purchasing.

  • CN and CP Rail last week fulfilled less than half of the hopper car orders for grain — are we in for another grain backlog? David Przednowek, director of marketing, grain, for CN joins the show to discuss.
