Every year, farmers put their net worth in the ground, believing they will have a crop to harvest at the end of the season. They can improve their odds with good crop protection practices. Host Steve Linscombe is joined by Arkansas rice farmer Sidney Robnett, LSU weed scientist Dr. Eric Webster, and Texas A&M etymologist Dr. Mo Way to unpack the complex and vital crop protection game.
Michael and Lesley also talked with California rice farmer Matthew Sligar about his new children’s book, Daddy’s Got Dirt.
