In this week's Around Farm Progress podcast, the focus is #plant20. It's spring, and Farm Progress editors are in the field – but maintaining their social distance – to track activity for this season. While coronavirus is on everyone's mind, when planters roll, farmers turn their focus to the work at hand.
With planters rolling down south the podcast kicks off talking with Shelley Huguley, editor, Southwest Farm Press, where a little extra help is a good thing, and it appears the weather is cooperating.
Next, we talk with Holly Spangler, editor, Prairie Farmer, about the Midwest situation including her conversations with suppliers about how the planting season is shaping up.
And we wrap up with a trip to Georgia to talk with Brad Haire, editor, Southeast Farm Press. Planter are rolling, but coronavirus is causing a different problem – it's putting a crimp in 2020 university research. He offers a perspective.
