RealAg Radio, August 4: Precision pulses, crop tour results, and finally some eastern rain!


It’s the Tuesday after the August long weekend (if you’re Canadian), and we’ve got a great show lined up for you today! Since we didn’t have an agronomic Monday show for you yesterday, today’s show will be jam-packed with all things agronomy. In this episode, you’ll hear:

  • RealAgriculture’s resident agronomist Peter “Wheat Pete” Johnson, on the recent rain in parts of Ontario — whether it saved the corn crop and what it might mean for those that opted out of spraying a fungicide on their corn this year.
  • Scott Gillespie, independent agronomist with Plants Dig Soil, on some of the research he’s been doing in terms of precision planting pulse crops; and
  • Neil Townsend of FarmLink Marketing Solutions, on their annual crop tour and some of the results the agronomists found across western Canada.
