Host Richard Hentschel interviews Russ Higgins, Commercial Agriculture Educator about getting ready to grow crops from the commercial agriculture perspective. Farmers, just like gardeners are concerned about our late frosts and light freezes. Much of our seed corn is produced in South America during our winters and will be returned for our Spring planting. Just like gardeners, farmers are going plant crops based on hardiness and the ability sprout and grow in cold through warmer soil temperatures.
Green Side Up is a weekly gardening program produced by University of Illinois Extension. It is hosted by Richard Hentschel, Extension Educator, Horticulture.
