Host Kyle Reiner welcomes agronomist Jason Hanson to discuss the 2016 spring wheat season on this week’s episode of The Deal With Yield®. Hanson’s territory of North Dakota saw spring wheat yields comparable to recent years, despite an onslaught of challenges. Tune in to hear about the toughest weed issues and how weather concocted the perfect storm for disease. Reiner and Hanson discuss why it’s important to consider not only high-yielding genetics, but how to manage them as well. Learn about the drawbacks of planting bin-run wheat and the unintended consequences of reintroducing seed, especially to disease-ridden acres.
