RealAg Radio, June 8: Beneficial insects, fungicide decisions, and compaction impacts


It’s that time of the year where farmers are working exceptionally hard to complete all the fieldwork they need to get done. We’ve got a great lineup to keep you educated and up-to-date on this Agronomic Monday episode of RealAg Radio. You’ll hear:

  • Paul Sullivan of Sullivan Agro on proper scouting and making sure that when we are going out into our fields, we are looking for the right things;
  • Andrew Reid of BASF on herbicide efficacy, and some of the things to consider when it comes to water volumes, nozzle selection, tank clean out, and more;
  • Peter “Wheat Pete” Johnson on beneficial insects, and the importance of paying attention and actually using those economic thresholds;
  • Aaron Daigh of North Dakota State University (NDSU) on compaction and some of the environmental, and economic impacts it can have for many years down the road.
