RealAg Radio, July 27: Eastern drought, post-anthesis scouting, and parasitoid insects


Holy moly, it’s somehow the last Monday in July already. Where has the time gone?! To start off the week, we’ve got a great lineup on RealAg Radio for you. On today’s show, you’ll hear:

  • RealAgriculture’s resident agronomist Peter “Wheat Pete” Johnson, on the drought situation that many eastern Canadian producers are facing, as well as some updates on the wheat yields;
  • Jeremy Boychyn, agronomy research extension specialist with the Alberta Wheat and Barley Commissions, on post-anthesis scouting, wheat stem sawfly volumes, and late-season rust; and
  • Tyler Wist, entomologist with Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC), on parasitoid insects, and how they impact the whole idea of beneficial insects.
