Our latest Agronomy and Farm Management podcasts have been on some fun and educational topics. Two weeks ago we talked to Sam Custer about eFields, the new platform for on-farm research. Custer has been heavily involved in on-farm research for the last several years. He and Elizabeth worked hard to roll out the eFields Report last winter and are back at it again this year. Elizabeth goes into more detail on improvements to the 2018 report and when we can expect to see it available.
In our newest podcast, we talked to Laura Lindsey about Winter Malting Barley and the trials she conducted this past growing season. Malting barley is of growing interest to farmer across Ohio as it has the potential to add another crop to the rotation. Lindsey and our other state specialists have posted article about malting barley so most of you are aware that research on varieties has been underway for a decade here in Ohio. Lindsey went a step further looking at nitrogen and seeding rates in her trials. She was not only investigating yield but malting quality as well. This podcast will be released on Wednesday.
