RealAg Radio, July 6: Drought impacts, insects in canola blooms, and fungicide applications


It’s another Monday, which means it’s time to tackle all things agronomy on RealAg Radio! On today’s show, you’ll hear:

  • RealAgriculture’s resident agronomist Peter “Wheat Pete” Johnson, on the hot dry weather that eastern Canada is facing and the impact it has on wheat, soybeans, and corn ;
  • Scott Meers of Mayland Ag Consulting, on what insects you should be watching for as your canola begins blooming;
  • Tracey Baute of Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs (OMAFRA), on spider mites and soybean aphids; and
  • Ken Currah of BASF, on what you need to know about fungicide applications, especially during wet conditions.
