BONUS Regional Update Podcast
If you’re subscribed to the podcast, you might’ve noticed there’s an extra bonus episode popping up at the moment.
We’re doing a new podcast in these crazy times as in-person events aren’t able to go ahead for the time being due to COVID-19.
Each Monday we’ll have an expert from a different cropping region to provide a regional weeds-focused update.
