Such a great way to stay up to date on research!
I don’t have time (or the attention span) to read new publications on sustainable agriculture but I do listen to podcasts while I do chores and this is a great way to continue to learn and improve my own farm. Thank you for doing the important work of interpreting the science for practical on farm use.
