Ever wonder how your favourite agronomist got their start? Or why a researcher chose their particular area of expertise? In the Agronomy Geeks podcast we talk to the men and women who’ve made an impact in the field of agronomy, and cover highlights from their lives and careers and what makes them tick. Hosted by self-described “Agronomy Geek”, Lyndsey Smith.
 
“I’m too busy. I don’t have time. Exercise is for city people. On the farm, we work.” Sound familiar? These are all things you may have said in relation to health and wellness while farming. By this reasoning, only lazy people are healthy because they have more time. This is not reality. This podcast is about small, practical changes and improvements for people who live in a rural and farm setting.
