Agronomics from a Different Point of View

Agronomics from a Different Point of View

Introducing Groundswell - a six-part podcast brought to you each month from planting through harvest

Sustainability and what we do about it on farm can seem vague and imprecise. It’s important that we as an industry better define it, measure it and then make improvements around it, so we can build a sustainable future for agriculture that is based on science.

It’s that idea that inspired us to create Groundswell, a six-part podcast we will be bringing you each month between now and harvest. We’ll be talking to farmers, agronomists and industry leaders who are helping farmers to define what sustainability looks like on their operation, and what it really means to have continuous improvement on every acre.

Guests will share how they address agronomic challenges as opportunities, and how farmers are making strides in nutrient use efficiency, soil health and water quality, a formula we know produces higher yields.

Listen to episode one below.
