10.1.19 Capitalizing on wheat agronomics and economics is at the top of Aaron Esser’s agenda, but as the Washington State University extension agronomist explains during the second part of his tour through the Wilke Research and Extension Farm, he’s juggling many balls in pursuit of that goal. In episode 145 entitled, WSU’s Aaron Esser Has the Second Best Job in Agriculture 2, he addresses rotations like canola, chickpeas and winter peas as part of the effort, not to mention wireworm control, which he mysteriously suggests may see another product added soon to today’s neonicotinoid arsenal. Esser also talks about Roger’s Shed, the 5,000 square foot steel building erected at the Wilke Farm, dedicated to Wilbur area farmer Roger Sheffels, who died in a 2001 plane crash.
