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:

  • Kelvin Heppner with the top news stories — including the Clearfield trait changing hands, a new name for Dow Seeds under Corteva, and big news for the hog industry in Manitoba
  • Peter Johnson and this week’s top in-the-field agronomy questions
  • And, yes, Brian Tischler, farmer from Mannville, AB, and his DIY autonomous tractor and open source GPS set up
