"WSU's Aaron Esser Has the Second Best Job in Agriculture" Podcast

WSU in weeds.

Episode 144 of Wheat All About It! titled, “WSU’s Aaron Esser Has the Second Best Job in Agriculture” features WSU extension agronomist Aaron Esser.

Join Scott and Aaron as they go through a tour of the 340 acre Wilke Research and Extension Farm. The Wilke farm is WSU’s only research facility in Eastern Washington’s intermediate production zone—12 to 16 inches of precipitation. It’s other claim to fame is a budget that depends entirely on crop sales to operate, a circumstance that causes Esser to do everything possible to earn a positive return on investment as he uses large strips to evaluate three and four year rotations on productivity, and weed and disease pressure.Wheat All About It Logo.Find this podcast on your smartphone podcast app, simply download and open the app and search “Wheat All About It”.
