California-based Pattern Ag sequences the DNA of topsoil’s entire microbial population to identify soil-borne pathogens and project what diseases will cause problems for no-tillers growing corn and soybeans. The company recently released a free 2023 Predictive Ag Report that highlights areas of concern for various corn and soybean pests for the coming year.

In this episode of the podcast, brought to you by Yetter Farm Equipment, contributing editor Dan Crummett talks with Mike Tweedy and Danielle Watts of Pattern Ag about the company’s soil testing process, predictions for the 2023 growing season and what ROI the company’s testing can provide for no-tillers.
