3.3.20 Alex McGregor is chairman of the McGregor Company, but he’s also an advocate for farmers and it was in that latter role he addressed the third Falling Number Summit held in Spokane Jan. 21 & 22. In episode 167 entitled: One Falling Numbers Punch in the Gut is Enough!, McGregor argues that a repeat of 2016, when low falling numbers caused millions of dollars in discounts across the region, could put many farmers out of business. But researchers get funding for problems that are occurring and they thrive on the challenge. The recent absence of widespread low falling numbers has banked the fire. McGregor reminds scientists what’s at stake. Subscribe to Wheat All About It! on iTunes and other podcast apps like Stitcher, Pocket Cast, Overcast and Radio FM.
