RealAg Radio, May 1: Seeding intentions, trade, and Ontario's soil strategy


Today’s show starts with a discussion on oil and diesel prices. Then:

  • Top Ag News – Canada’s GDP in February, U.S. extends steel and aluminum tariff exemptions, re-labelling TPP, CN and CP trending in opposite directions, and more.
  • Behind the scenes at StatsCan, and reactions to the report – Kelvin Heppner shares his learnings on just how seeding intention surveys are conducted, then Chuck Penner, LeftField Commodity Research, joins to share his reactions to the numbers.
  • Is the Ontario soil strategy just more bureaucratic regulation? Or is there some good agronomy? Lyndsey Smith joins the show to talk about it (with a bonus discussion on Doug Ford’s ever-changing mind re. the Greenbelt).

Join us for RealAg Radio every weekday at 4 pm eastern on Rural Radio 147 on SiriusXM.
