Prince Edward Island Potato Board launches Spudchat podcast

The Prince Edward Island Potato Board is excited to share with potato farmers and industry partners the launch of a new podcast, Spudchat.

 This weekly podcast is hosted by Ryan Barrett, Research and Agronomy Specialist, and will feature conversations with a variety of farmers, researchers, agronomists, and industry partners. Spudchat will primarily focus on agronomic topics of importance to potato farmers, including pest and disease management, soil health, improved crop rotations, seed management, precision agriculture, and more.

Wayne Townshend, Chair of the PEI Potato Board, notes that “increasingly, farmers are getting information in a variety of different methods. Podcasts, which can be downloaded and listened to at a convenient time, maybe when in the tractor or the truck, is another way to share information on innovative technologies and improved practices with our membership.”

This podcast is available to stream or download at https://spudchat.buzzsprout.com/. Spudchat is also available on Spotify, Stitcher, and other podcast platforms and will be available on all other major podcast directories in the coming weeks. New episodes will be available every Wednesday, with the first episode available to listen to now.

The Spudchat podcast was born out of the Agronomy Initiative for Marketable Yield (AIM), a three-way funding partnership between Island potato farmers, Cavendish Farms, and the Province of Prince Edward Island, as well as expertise from Agriculture & Agri-Food Canada.
