Top Question of the Week:

This week’s top question is once again on the topic of soil sampling. Here’s what the farmer asked:

“Question for all of the precision agronomists or anyone that’s involved in zone or grid soil sampling: How do you all cope with the long, seemingly endless days of soil sampling and avoid burning people out?”
