New episodes of The Cutting Edge: A Podcast in Search of New Crops for Wisconsin are now available. This podcast is produced by the UW-Madison Division of Extension Emerging Crops Team. The podcast provides growers with research-based information on new and emerging crops in Wisconsin. Each episode of The Cutting Edge focuses on a single crop by interviewing researchers, growers, and movers and shakers behind each crop.
Jason Fischbach, one of the co-hosts of The Cutting Edge, says: “The goal of the podcast is two-fold. First, we want to give growers in-depth knowledge and information about emerging and alternative crops to help growers decide whether to pursue the opportunity. Second, we want to provide growers and stakeholders an inside look at what it takes to develop new crops and markets for these crops”.
The two most recent episodes feature winter camelina, a highly promising winter annual oilseed cash cover
crop with the potential to be a game changer for cover crops on millions of acres across the Upper Midwest.
