From painfully dry weather across much of North America to record high temps in the South and West to massive wildfires in the North, weather extremes have impacted growers across the continent this year.
In this episode, we will start with a weather update from Nutrien Ag Solutions® Senior Meteorologist Andrew Pritchard. Andrew will explain how an emerging El Nino pattern and a weakened jet stream have contributed to the conditions we've seen and how there may be some relief for parched parts of the Corn Belt as the calendar rolls into August.
We will also hear from Nutrien Ag Solutions Crop Consultant Lyle Benjamin. As one of the early adopters of our Sustainable Nitrogen Outcomes and soil organic carbon programs, Lyle has secured more than 150,000 acres of enrollment across his territory in the arid Mountain West.
And it turns out that, in a drought-heavy year, we can all learn a lot from growers in one of the driest parts of the country. Lyle will discuss what's working for his customers and what's not, what we can learn from his neighbors to the North in Canada and why growers should get enrolled.
