Spring Emergence

Show Notes

Spring is officially here, with the first annual weeds starting to grow. Farmers are preparing for the planting season, with some already starting to seed their fields. The weather is predicted to be dry and warm, which will impact the tillage practices. Adjuvants will be crucial for effective burndown of weeds, especially with the dusty conditions. Crop choices for the season include lentils, chickpeas, barley, canola, and soybeans. Sunflower and quinoa cultivation is limited due to market prices and weed challenges. Faba beans are a good crop option for northern regions. The conversation covers various topics related to agriculture, including the challenges of growing faba beans, the emergence of specialty crops like safflower and buckwheat, the importance of early preparation for the spring season, and the potential pest and disease issues that farmers may face. Jason and Kyle also discuss their appreciation for different types of beers, including hazy IPAs and lagers.
