Wheat harvest, Texas windstorm and dicamba chaos

It seems in agriculture there may be a new phrase "mixed bag" and given what's been discussed in recent episodes of the podcast Around Farm Progress it could be the new watchword for the industry.

In this week's episode, Shelley Huguley, editor, Southwest Farm Press, shares insight on the wheat harvest, and how the weather is shaping up this summer to challenge the 2020 crop, from drought to windstorms. And we touch on the impact of the Ninth Circuit Court ruling on dicamba.

Mindy Ward, editor of Missouri Ruralist, builds on the dicamba conversation discussing the ruling, the confusion and what all this might mean for the future of crop protection. And she turns the tables on the podcast host to discuss how agtech might be impacted.
