RealAg Radio, June 10: Flea beetles, stressed plants, and soil sealing

Episodes:

Today, on this Agronomic Monday:

  • Flea beetles – Hector Carcamo, research entomologist with Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, joins RealAgriculture field editor Kara Oosterhuis to discuss flea beetles on the prairies, neonicotinoids, and foliar insecticides.
  • Everything agronomy – FCL’s Jack Payne and resident agronomist Peter Johnson talk about too much to summarize, including: the variability in weather across the country (and even between towns); the benefits of tiled land; physiological fleck and leaf yellowing; herbicide performance in changing environmental conditions; what ‘real wheat growers’ spray; late tillering plants; soil sealing; and Johnson takes offence to the statement “the rain petered out.”
