Podcast: Alabama Crops Report

The Alabama Crops Report Podcast is where the research meets the row. When time is tight and every minute matters, the Alabama Cooperative Extension System agronomy team makes decision-making simpler for farmers by bringing Extension expertise straight to the tractor cab.

Producers can expect to hear a wide range of topics throughout the year. From insect scouting tips to fertilizer application recommendations and harvest updates—timely issues in the field will be addressed by agents and specialists from all over the state. Episodes will be 10 to 15 minutes long in conversational form. New episodes will drop weekly during the production season. Listeners can expect multiple episodes in a week if there are multiple important topics to discuss.

Available on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Spotify, and Stitcher.

The Alabama Crops Report Podcast is sponsored in part by Alabama Ag Credit.
