RealAg Radio, August 19: Beneficial rain for (some) crops, spider mites, and swath timing


It’s the start of the week and that means it’s time for another edition of agronomic Monday on RealAg Radio!

Today on the show:

  • RealAgriculture’s in-house agronomist, Peter ‘Wheat Pete’ Johnson joins host Shaun Haney to talk all things agronomy including: wacky weather, corn maturity, spider mites, a compaction day and, of course, as always, he answers all your agronomic questions; and,
  • Haney digs into the RealAg vault to find a great and timely piece on swath timing with Clinton Jurke of the Canola Council of Canada.

Have feedback on the show? Connect with host Shaun Haney via email [email protected], or on Twitter, by using the hashtag, #RealAgRadio.

RealAg Radio airs every weekday afternoon at 4:30 p.m. ET (2:30 p.m. MT) on Rural Radio 147 on SiriusXM.
