Alabama Extension wants producers across the state to know about the Alabama Crops Report Podcast. The podcast is where information about things like armyworms moving in or Southern rust conditions setting in can be found. The Alabama Extension crops team will bring their expertise to producers through this series, which is available on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Spotify, and Stitcher.
Producers can expect to hear a wide range of topics throughout the year. From insect scouting tips to fertilizer application recommendations and harvest updates. The crops team will tackle timely issues in the field on a weekly basis.
Scott Graham, Katelyn Kesheimer, Amanda Scherer, and Adam Rabinowitz will take turns interviewing Extension specialists, regional agents, and agronomists about happenings in the field. Episodes will be 10 to 15 minutes long.
Current podcasts include the following:
- Episode 1: Cotton Update
- Episode 2: Commodity Crop Prices and Fertilizer Costs
- Episode 3: Managing Weeds in Corn
- Episode 4: Managing Insects in Corn
New episodes will drop every Thursday during the production season, and in cases where there are several important topics to discuss, there could be multiple episodes in a week.
