Top 5 ag stories: Pollinator week, volunteer corn and using satellites to determine subsoil moisture

Planet Earth With Satellite (North America - USA ). All the world map textures are originally from NASA.
In this week's edition, we take a look at a satellite that could measure subsoil moisture and the application of manure on double crop soybeans.

The top five ag stories this week include a project by Iowa State University that could help producers measure subsoil moisture using satellite imagery. Plus, a look at how to control glyphosate resistant volunteer corn in Liberty Link soybean fields and Pollinator Week reflects how collaboration can help everyone involved. In addition, we end the week with a giggle.
