On agronomic Monday, we will cover the country and hear the challenges and opportunities for growers. This has brought some major adversity, and growers across the west and east have persevered the best they can by optimizing the variables thrown their way.

Holly Derksen on pulse crop diseases that impacted the 2018 crop and Mike Cowbrough of OMAFRA on weed control in soybeans and your strategy to optimize control.
