(IARN) — Challenges are nothing new in agriculture. Every year we face some of the same challenges we have faced in previous years, and we also come face to face with new issues as well. All the weather and trade aside, we faced some problems that we have been watching for years. That isn’t to say the unique year of 2019 didn’t present us with some new things to think about.
Dustin Hoffmann of the Iowa Agribusiness Radio Network talked with Brandon Schrage of FMC. They discussed the disease pressures that we saw in 2019. Those were some of the old problems that just gave us a different pattern. However, a problem that Schrage says has been growing over the past several years in the corn belt is resistance to BT traited corn.
