On this episode of The Agronomists, two entomologists and a real-live insect join voice-less host Lyndsey Smith to cover so many of the pest problems that popped up on the Prairies this growing season.

James Tansey, of Saskatchewan Agriculture, and Tyler Wist, of Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, cover the grasshopper lifecycle and threats for ’24, armyworm scouting, and perhaps the reason why severe aster yellows infection may only happen every 10 years or so.
