We conclude our agronomy series this week with highlights from the featured agronomists who contributed over the last four weeks. Look for more agronomic updates as we enter the growing season and throughout the year. We hope you found the featured blogs interesting and informative, and we hope they will help you Be Ready for the upcoming growing season and beyond.
We began the agronomy series with Brian Hefty of Ag PhD. Brian and his brother Darren work with their father in the family seed and ag chemical business, Hefty Seed. The brothers also produce regular podcasts on their website, radio and television programs and hold winter workshops for farmers. (more…)
One of the most popular online sources for agricultural information in Ontario is CropLine. Sponsored by the Ontario Ministry for Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs (OMAFRA), CropLine is a weekly podcast covering all kinds of topics of interest to crop farmers. Peter Johnson, cereals specialist for field crops with OMAFRA is the voice behind CropLine, with help from guest speakers. Johnson is an animated, interesting speaker who discusses markets, soils, weeds, diseases and many other crop-related issues. As part of our Agronomy Series, we highlight Johnson’s recent CropLine discussion on lambsquarters research at the University of Guelph. Our goal at Case IH is to provide useful sources of information; we hope this blog and others like it will help you Be Ready for the future. (more…)
