RealAg Radio, June 15: Catastrophic storms, reseeding decisions, and all things agronomy


We hope you made it through some of the catastrophic storms that ripped through parts of Western Canada over the weekend. It brought torrential downpours, hail, plough winds, and even some tornados through areas of the Prairies.

It’s Agronomic Monday on RealAg Radio, and on today’s episode, you’ll hear:

  • Dr. Doug Baumann of Syngenta, on hitting fusarium on the head, and what we’ve got to do to make sure we creating a fungicide management plan;
  • Autumn Barnes, agronomy specialist with the Canola Council of Canada (CCC), on reseeding decisions — whether it be due to wind, storms, or flea beetles. There’s a lot of things going against the canola crop in certain parts of the prairies right now. Barnes talks about how you can make that decision on whether or not to reseed;
  • Dr. Sheri Strydhorst, with Alberta Agriculture and Forestry, on PGR timing and some of the considerations you may want to take into account heading into the spraying season; and
  • Peter “Wheat Pete” Johnson, on all things agronomy across the country.
