RealAg Radio, August 28: Trudeau reacts to the U.S. Mexico trade agreement, Day 1 of FPS, and will NAFTA be no more?


Reaction continues to pour in from Mondays trade announcement between the U.S. and Mexico. Host, Shaun Haney, surveys what’s to come this week as Canada tries to secure a trilateral agreement. News lead, Jessika Guse, also discusses the reaction from the National Corn Growers Association to the USDA aid package. Other topics include:

  • Canada has a new chief agriculture negotiator
  • General Mills has agreed to stop calling their granola bars 100 per cent natural after independent tests conducted by environmental groups found a very, very, very small trace of glyphosate (Spoiler alert, Shaun get’s a little heated)
  • New research at Lethbridge College on subsurface drip irrigation
  • Agriculture in the Classroom Canada is back for another school year and about to roll out a new research portal for teachers to incorporate agriculture in their curriculum

Later in the show, Kelvin Heppner joins Shaun to discuss the U.S. Farm Progress Show taking place right now in Boone, Iowa, Jim Wiesemeyer, Washington Insider for Pro Farmer, breaks down what Canadians can expect this week in the trilateral or bilateral trade talks, and Graham Lloyd, general manager of the Dairy Farmers of Ontario, speaks to Shaun about what they’re hoping to see, and if there’s room for compromise.

RealAg Radio airs every weekday afternoon at 4:30 p.m. eastern (2:30 p.m. mountain) on Rural Radio 147 on SiriusXM (replays the following day at 7 a.m.)
