Montana State University Cropping Systems Specialist, Perry Miller, will talk about pulse crop research in Montana. Pea and lentil production in Montana has increased from less than 5,000 acres in 1994 to nearly 500,000 acres in 2010. The combination of record pea and lentil production with record prices put the icing on a very wealthy cropping year in Montana in 2010. Pulse crop research and Extension from MSU and elsewhere helped to make this happen.
Montana Ag Live is a regular call-in program on agriculture and gardening in Montana. Presented by MontanaPBS in association with Montana State University Extension, the program hosts panels of experts to discuss everything from pesticide use, and large-scale agricultural techniques, to backyard gardening questions, and even which mushroom to pick in the woods.
