Episode 99: Howard Nelson’s Hunt: Seeking the Elusive Eastern Washington Alternative Crop

10.13.18 Wheat is the king of Eastern Washington’s dryland field crops, but there has never been a shortage of alternative crops seeking to share its throne.

Listen in to episode 99 entitled: “Howard Nelson’s Hunt: Seeking the Elusive Eastern Washington Alternative Crop”, as he and Scott Yates, director of communications and producer relations for the Washington Grain Commission, handicap the contenders.
