With the Canadian Spud Congress coming up on March 22 and 23, we’re highlighting the sessions happening at it on Spud Smart. In this story we’re taking a closer look at the “Be Weather-Ready in 2022” session.

Without a doubt, weather is one of the most important factors to success each season and it’s entirely out of grower control. Mother Nature is relentless. From drought to floods to more-frequent Derecho events, she’s known for throwing a wrench into production plans.

Taming Mother Nature might be an impossible task but predicting her moves might not be. Join Scott Kehler to get an update on planting season conditions and longer-term forecasts for summer and harvest.

Moderator: Sonja Begemann, Spud Smart U.S. correspondent

Time: 10:45 a.m. CDT on March 22
