Focusing On Early Season Plant Health
Your crops emerged, you have an even stand, and you’re feeling pretty good about things. Now what? Well, now is the time to focus on plant health.

Drainage AND Subsurface Irrigation Using The Same Pipe?
In Fall of 2021, Miles Farms installed drainage tile on 35 acres as a trial with ADS. Drainage tile isn’t used in the Arkansas Delta where Matt and Layne Miles farm.

Managing Matt's Sharkey Clay

Farming in Quebec With Sam of the North
Sam Coutu wasn’t raised on a farm but he knew he wanted to work in production agriculture. He spent summers at his uncle’s dairy farm in his native Quebec then spent 3 months on a farm in Switzerland as a teenager. Today this first generation farmer operates 1,540 acres of corn, soybeans, and wheat. (Only 2% of the land in Quebec is farm ground!) Listen in and learn about Agriculture north of the St. Lawrence from our newest affiliate “Sam Of The North!”
