New Podcast Focuses on Growing Pulse Crops
Anyone interested in growing pulse crops (chickpeas, peas, and lentils) will have an opportunity to learn more through this podcast series that North Dakota State University plant pathologist Dr. Audrey Kalil initiated in collaboration with podcaster Tim Hammerich (Future of Ag, Soil Sense).
The first podcast, Growing Pulse Crops with speaker Tim McGreevy, CEO USADPLC is available above or at www.growingpulsecrops.com or through cellphone podcast apps. Episodes will be released biweekly, with 13 total episodes this season. "This series of podcasts by Dr. Audrey Kalil from NDSU's Williston Research Extension Center is a fantastic way for pulse producers to brush up on their knowledge during the busy spring seeding season" states Chris Westergard, NPGA President.
The series will follow pulse crop farmers through the growing season and dive into the research that’s helping them through some of the challenges they face. They will also feature other industry stakeholders along the way. “Topics include weed, disease and pest management, as well as market updates.” says Kalil, who is based at NDSU’s Williston Research Extension Center.
“This series was developed by members by of the Pulse Crop Working Group in response to stakeholder interest in this format,” Kalil says. “The goal of the Pulse Crop Working Group is to foster collaborative relationships among researchers, extension professionals and stakeholders through face-to-face meetings and virtual interaction to address integrated pest management priorities in pulse crops.”
The group is funded by the North Central IPM Center. Visit
