RealAg Radio, June 28: ‘Mistreated’ wheat, Wheat Pete’s Word, and open source GPS

Does the future of farming have to be autonomous or is there still value in keeping a person at the helm of each piece of equipment? That’s just one aspect of the human vs. machine discussion in today’s episode of RealAg Radio — host Shaun Haney also explores the very real importance of the human element to crop scouting and diagnostics, too.

Also on today’s show:

Join us for RealAg Radio every weekday at 4 pm eastern on Rural Radio 147 on SiriusXM (and catch the replay the following morning at 7 am eastern).
