One of favorite ways to pass the time at work, on a tractor, or on road trips is with our favorite podcasts. The podcast, Field Work, will return next month with a second season dedicated to new discussions about agriculture, sustainability, and the experiences of those on farming’s front lines.
Season Two launches March 11 with weekly episodes dropping on Wednesdays. In this season of Field Work, co-hosts Mitchell Hora and Zach Johnson will continue their conversations about cover crops, conservation tillage, and water management, while expanding into dairy farm sustainability, integrating livestock into a row crop operation, bioreactors, hemp farming and more. The trailer for Season Two is available here.
Hora, an Iowa farmer and soil health consultant, and Johnson, a fifth-generation farmer from west central Minnesota — also recognized as YouTube’s “Millennial Farmer” — will welcome in a number of guests from the agriculture industry to this season of Field Work and also bring in the voices of listeners who have submitted questions and comments since the wrap of the podcast’s debut season.
