Ever wonder how your favourite agronomist got their start? Or why a researcher chose their particular area of expertise? In the Agronomy Geeks podcast we talk to the men and women who’ve made an impact in the field of agronomy, and cover highlights from their lives and careers and what makes them tick. Hosted by self-described “Agronomy Geek”, Lyndsey Smith.
 
“I’m too busy. I don’t have time. Exercise is for city people. On the farm, we work.” Sound familiar? These are all things you may have said in relation to health and wellness while farming. By this reasoning, only lazy people are healthy because they have more time. This is not reality. This podcast is about small, practical changes and improvements for people who live in a rural and farm setting.

Health Canada has issued a long-awaited clarification on how it will regulate different forms of plant breeding, including newer gene-editing methods. Genetically modified crops are deemed “novel” under Canada’s regulatory framework, requiring an expensive multi-year safety review before being approved for sale, but there was uncertainty about whet…

Canada is standing by its proposed solution regarding dairy tariff-rate quotas under the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), as U.S. dairy groups continue to pressure the White House to escalate the matter.

It’s been a wild week in the wheat markets, with lots of trading action and news stories driving the markets. Chaos, says Jon Driedger of Leftfield Commodities Research, is one way to describe it — starting off with last week’s United States Department of Agriculture report. “That was a friendly report for wheat.

In ideal conditions, the recommendation is to roll pea acres shortly after seeding. But what happens when a portion of the Prairie’s pulse growing acres are facing extreme drought?

Positioning of the right crop protection products in the right region for the right timeframe is an annual logistics challenge.

Crop insurance deadlines may be looming, but the rush to get corn seed in the ground when it’s late in the planting window and soil conditions are wet can also cause problems, such as poor root development, later in the growing season.

Not all glufosinate ammonium herbicide formulations are the same. This is especially important to note in areas that grow both glufosinate-tolerant (aka LibertyLink) corn and canola. A corn grower in Ontario, or in the Midwest U.S., who orders Liberty or glufosinate from a retailer would likely receive a formulation containing 200g of active ingred…
